Background: Maraviroc is unique among approved antiretroviral drugs in targeting the host-cell CCR5 receptor. With its novel mechanism of action, we sought to describe the 5-year safety profile of maraviroc.
Methods: Two large phase 3 studies of maraviroc enrolled HIV-infected, treatment-experienced patients and followed them for 5 or more years. Survival and selected clinical endpoints were identified and assessed.
Results: A total of 938 enrolled patients received maraviroc-containing regimens. Rates of death and selected clinical events (e.g., hepatic failure, malignancy, myocardial infarction) were low during follow-up.
Conclusions: Maraviroc was generally safe in treatment-experienced participants over more than 5 years
