WEP Clinical LTD (WEP), a specialist services company that works with pharmaceutical companies to help patients and physicians gain access to medicines when no other treatment options are available, has partnered with TaiMed Biologics to launch a Named Patient Program (NPP) for TROGARZO®, an IV treatment administered every two weeks for patients with muti-drug resistant HIV disease.

TROGARZO® (ibalizumab-uiyk) is approved in the United States of America by the FDA as a CD4-directed post-attachment HIV-1 inhibitor, in combination with other antiretroviral(s), is indicated for the treatment of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection in heavily treatment experienced adults with multidrug resistant HIV-1 infection failing their current antiretroviral regimen.
TROGARZO® is a recombinant humanized monoclonal antibody that works to block HIV-1 from infecting CD4+ T cells by binding to domain 2 of CD4 and interfering with post-attachment steps required for the entry of HIV-1 virus particles into host cells and preventing the viral transmission that occurs via cell-cell fusion. TROGARZO® is administered as an intravenous infusion or intravenous push every 2 weeks.
