Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for your post.
Enfuvirtide (Fuzeon) is only available as a twice-daily subcutaneous injection and it is the only member of it's drug class.
Maraviroc (Selzentry) is a different class of medications (CCR5 inhibitor).
Both drugs prevent HIV entry into human cells, but work through entirely different mechanisms.
Hope this helps, BY
