 Maravirok Drug Information

Maravirok is an antiretroviral drug. It is used to control the symptoms of HIV infection. Maravirok reduces the progression and proliferation of HIV but is not a definitive treatment. The HIV virus destroys cells in the body called CD4 cells. These cells are very important for the body to defend against a variety of infections. If HIV infection is not treated, the immune system gradually weakens and loses the ability to fight off various infections. Maravirok is a CCR5 antagonist antiretroviral drug that blocks the CCR5 receptor required by the HIV virus to enter CD4 marker T cells. As a result, Maravirok helps keep the immune system healthy by reducing the amount of virus entering the body's immune cells.

Maravirok is prescribed in combination with other medicines to treat HIV. Combination therapy for HIV reduces the resistance of the virus to drugs, and the use of combination drugs increases the effectiveness of drugs.
