Response from Mr. Kurtyka

Hi Titas,

For a current summary of the entry inhibitor class of ARV agents, please check out this link on thebody.com for a nice overview created by Project Inform:

Entry Inhibitors

Unfortunately it is premature to predict a date when any of the agents will appear on the market and what their cost will be. Just about every new agent that is approved is more expensive than it's predecessor, but this information is never known until the time the drug comes to market. Your first pronunciation of 'maraviroc' is correct! Good luck with your studies...
