Background: Maraviroc is unique among approved antiretroviral drugs in targeting the host-cell chemokine coreceptor type-5 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 up for 5 or more years. Survival and selected clinical end points were identified and assessed.

Results: A total of 938 enrolled patients received maraviroc-containing regimens. Rates of death and selected clinical events (eg, hepatic failure, malignancy, and myocardial infarction) were low during follow-up.

Conclusions: Maraviroc was generally safe in treatment-experienced participants for >5 years.
