LENIS, William. VIH disease, Integrase Strand Transfer Inhibitors and the future of elite controllers: bibliographic review. Infect. [online]. 2019, vol.23, suppl.1, pp.61-72. ISSN 0123-9392.

The Colombian Guide to Clinical Practice for HIV / AIDS Care in Adolescents and Adults, includes as first line of treatment the use of integrase inhibitors; however, there is no information to support the decision to treat elite control patients (EC). The definition of elite controller is confusing, because of the changes in definitions between studies, and it is unknown whether these recommendations apply to these patients in a similar way; and how should be systematic follow-up of elite controllers when antiretroviral therapy is initiated. Present paper is a bibliographic review of the available information on the definition of the controllers, and elite controllers its clinical and immunological evolution, the treatment and therapies available in Colombia.

Keywords : HIV elite controllers; HIV slow progressors; long term non progressors; tipical progessors; integrase inhibitors.
