Following a full submission

atazanavir (Reyataz) is accepted for use within NHS Scotland in antiretroviral treatment naïve HIV-1 infected adults in combination with other antiretroviral medicinal products.

The combination of atazanavir and ritonavir was non-inferior to a standard boosted protease inhibitor regimen in treatment naïve HIV patients. The combined regimen was associated with lower incidences of diarrhoea and lipid adverse-effects and a higher incidence of hyperbilirubinaemia in this patient population.
