FDA Approves TROGARZO to Treat HIV
Posted on: March 7 2018, 07:45 pm

Dear All,

Attached please find the poster about ibalizumab as presented at CROI2018 today.
You can read more about this compound here:
https://www.positivelyaware.com/articles/back-future

Note that ibalizumab is an IV drug that needs to be given in a 40-minute infusion every two weeks. It is meant to be used, at least at this stage, for salvage therapy in cases where multiple resistance patterns leave patients without any sound treatment options. Therefore, it is for a limited group of patients, at least for now.

Also, while we don't have any precise information about the price of the treatment, we assume on the basis of similar compounds used in the cancer field that it will be an expensive product intended for a niche market rather than first-line therapy.
