Thanks for taking my question. Is this "Drug" (Elvitegravir (GS-9137) like the Marivoc needing the Tropism tests to see if one will have the CCRO5 OR CCRO4 data? And as of 2008, do you have an update re: Elvitegravir (GS-9137) Thank You
Response from Dr. Young
Thanks for your post.
Elvitegravir is an experimental HIV integrase inhibitor, currently entering phase 3 clinical studies. Other than patients who have previously failed the other integrase inhibitor (raltegravir, ISENTRESS), there isn't any requirement for a baseline drug susceptibility test (like that for maraviroc, SELZENTRY).
