Dosing adjustment?

Nov 29, 2004


Male pt;has VL= 700K/cd4=400. has some resistance to ARVs, had a gastric bypass, his weight is 400 lbs. any suggestions on dosing?


Response from Mr. Kurtyka

I've never heard of any adjustments for weight (whether it be for a very small patient or a large patient). I double-checked the Fuzeon product insert and it states "No dose adjustment is recommended for weight or gender."
