Resistance to Atripla
Feb 14, 2009

My partner is currently on Atripla which they say he is becoming resistant - he has been diagnosed with HIV and has lived with it for over 24 years. His current CD4 count is 70 and Viral load is 63000... Following a new test called Trofile ? they are considering a drug from the CCR5 Antagonnist class "Maraviroc" - which we believe is relatively new ... what is know about it's effectiveness ..

Response from Dr. Henry

If the Trofile new generation assay shows R5 virus than miraviroc would be expected to contribute to control of the virus in a new regimen which often would include several other newer drugs (such as raltegravir, darunavir, etravirine) based on treatment history and resistance testings. Miraviroc has been a generally effective and well tolerated drug when used properly. KH
