Injection reaction a given fact?
Sep 24, 2004

Will every person injecting Fuzeon develop a site reaction? If not, what are the approximate percentage of those that do? Thanks.

Response from Dr. Henry

There may be a very few patients (< 5%) who have little to no injection site reactions with Fuzeon. Only a small % are severe (< 10%) such that the patient does not want to continue. Quality of life surveys have generally shown that patients (often to their own surprise) tolerate the injections well over the first 1-2 years of use. KH
