What is FUZEON®, and how does it work?
FUZEON is a medicine called an HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) fusion inhibitor. FUZEON is used to treat adults and children ages 6 - 16 years with HIV infection who are treatment experienced. FUZEON must be used with other anti-HIV medicines.
FUZEON blocks HIV's ability to infect healthy T cells (CD4). When used with other anti-HIV medicines, FUZEON can reduce the amount of HIV in the blood and increase the number of T cells.
FUZEON is not a cure for HIV infection or AIDS, and you may continue to experience illnesses associated with HIV-1 infection, including opportunistic infections. You should remain under the care of a doctor when using FUZEON.
