Assessment of Needs
The primary results of the REPRIEVE (Evaluating the Use of Pitavastatin to Reduce the Risk of Cardiovascular Disease in HIV-Infected Adults) trial were published in the New England Journal of Medicine in July 2023 and show that the statin drug pitavastatin calcium lowers the risk of heart disease in people with HIV by 35%. The results of this important large, randomized trial will have a substantial impact on the health of people with HIV. In this webinar, REPRIEVE principal investigator Dr Steven Grinspoon shares the study findings as well as their implications for individuals with HIV.
On completion of this activity, learners will be able to:
- Describe the methodology, main results, and limitations of the REPRIEVE trial.
- Evaluate the implications of the study results and their potential impact upon the treatment of patients with HIV.
- Integrate the study findings into the treatment plans of adult patients with HIV who are on antiretroviral therapy.

Conflicts of Interest
In the interest of maintaining the independence of its continuing medical education (CME) activities, the International Antiviral Society–USA (IAS–USA) requires all persons with control of educational content (eg, faculty, Scientific Leadership Board, Governance Board, and program planner) to disclose any financial relationships with ineligible companies (previously defined as “commercial interests”) that they have had within the past 24 months. Any real or apparent conflicts of interest of those parties are resolved and mitigated prior to the CME activity being delivered. Individuals who refuse to disclose financial interests may not participate in IAS–USA CME activities.
The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) defines ineligible companies as “those whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients.”
IAS–USA will identify and resolve ahead of time any possible conflicts of interest that may influence CME activities with regard to exposition or conclusion. Information about financial relationships with ineligible companies for the presenter and planners/reviewers is below and in the slides prior to the presentation of educational content.
