Study Description:

In the mid-90s, the advent of combination antiretroviral therapies (cART), i.e. highly active antiretroviral therapies, markedly changed the prognosis for patients with human immunodeficiency virus infection (HIV+). The term cART is used to designate a combination therapy designed to achieve maximum suppression of the viral burden. HIV infection is now considered a chronic disease for which effective therapies are available rather than a disease with poor prognosis1,2. Celsentri (or Selzentry® - drug substance: maraviroc) was the first antiretroviral drug in the CCR5 receptor antagonist class to obtain a marketing authorization (MA) in Europe. The marketing authorization was granted by the European Medicines Agency on 18 September 2007. Maraviroc, in combination with other antiretroviral drugs, is indicated in the treatment of HIV infection with detected CCR5 tropism only in adults pretreated with antiretrovirals. On 11 June 2008, the Transparency Commission of the French High Authority for Health (HAS) formulated a favorable opinion on the inclusion of maraviroc on the list of proprietary medicinal products reimbursed for patients with social security coverage and on inclusion on the list of medicinal products accredited for use by collective institutions and miscellaneous public services. Viral tropism determination is necessary prior to maraviroc treatment since the latter is not effective for patients infected by viruses with tropisms other than R5, CXCR4 tropism or double/mixed tropism viruses. Phenotypic tropism tests and genotypic tropism tests have been recommended by the HAS since 2009. Evaluation of the public health value of maraviroc thus necessitates both data on HIV-1 tropism determination and long-term follow-up data.
