I noticed this in one of your recent responses and wondered what you mean: I hope you do not have raltegravir resistance and that your tropism test showed an R5 virus.
Response from Mr. Vergel
I am just telling that patient that I hope he/she can use raltegravir (Isentress) and that their tropism test showed that they can use Maraviroc (Selzentry). Those are two new drugs that are helping people with multidrug resistance.
