Abstract

* Potentially dangerous electrocardiographic changes may occur when the HIV protease inhibitors saquinavir (Invirase) and ritonavir (Norvir) are taken together.

 

* Either a prolonged QT interval, which can lead to torsades de pointes, or a prolonged PR interval, which can lead to heart block, can occur.
