Imagine regaining viral suppression, even if other HIV-1 treatments have failed you. TROGARZO® (ibalizumab-uiyk) is a breakthrough in HIV-1 treatment, the first and only long-acting antiviral, designed specifically for those with second-line regimen failure.1,2
*Undetectable viral load is defined as fewer than 50 copies of HIV per mL of blood.
If you have experienced treatment failures, it may feel like getting your viral load back to undetectable levels is out of reach.
Imagine regaining viral suppression,
even if other treatments have failed you.
To combat HIV-1 when treatment fails, a regimen should be modified as soon as possible to avoid further resistance. The most effective HIV-1 treatment regimen is one that combines 3 active antiretroviral medicines. An active antiretroviral medicine could be a new type you didn’t try before.
In a clinical study, TROGARZO® was proven to have a significant and long-lasting impact on the amount HIV-1 in the body, reducing or “lightening” viral load.
83% of patients
were able to
reduce their HIV-1 viral load
after receiving a single dose of TROGARZO®.
Also, studies showed that patients who reached undetectable were able to remain undetectable over time. TROGARZO® does not interact with other drugs, so you can take it with other medications you may be taking. Be sure to discuss other medications you may be taking with your healthcare provider before taking TROGARZO®.
This is the experience of one patient and may not be representative of all TROGARZO® patients.
TROGARZO® is a medicine that’s used in combination with other antiretroviral medicines to treat HIV-1 infection in adults who:
Have been on different HIV-1 treatment regimens in the past, and
Have HIV-1 that is resistant to antiretroviral medicines, and
Are currently on an HIV-1 treatment regimen that is failing
THE FIRST AND ONLY LONG-ACTING ANTIVIRAL AGAINST HIV-1
TROGARZO® works differently. Unlike antiretroviral medicines that aim to prevent HIV-1 from multiplying inside the immune system’s T-cells, it is a biologic - an antibody bioengineered specifically to protect your T-cells from the virus. TROGARZO® binds to the T-cell’s surface to block HIV-1 from entering.
This can help protect the T-cell and reduce or “lighten” your viral load.
TROGARZO® is not a daily pill. It’s an intravenous (IV) infusion given over 15 to 30 minutes every 2 weeks. Infusion appointments can be a great time to ask any questions you may have about your treatment, or simply keep in touch with your care provider.

What is my HIV-1 viral load?
What is resistance?
Do I need resistance testing?
Which classes of HIV-1 treatments am I resistant to?
What fully active agents are available to me?
Am I currently on two or three fully active agents?
How many HIV-1 treatment options do I have left?
Could I benefit from adding TROGARZO® to my treatment plan?
