Maraviroc Efficacy for Hepatitis C


Brief description of study

This is a single-site, longitudinal, open-label, interventional study for evaluating the effect of maraviroc on hepatitis C viral levels in patients infected with both hepatitis C and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and taking antiretroviral therapy for HIV.

Detailed Study Description

Recently, in-vitro studies (experiments performed in a laboratory, not on a person) have demonstrated that maraviroc, a medication that is used in human immunodeficiency (HIV) therapy, appears to have significant hepatitis C antiviral effect, comparable to sofosbuvir-a potent anti-hepatitis C medication. In this study, the investigators will evaluate the antiviral effect of maraviroc on hepatitis C virus in people infected with both hepatitis C and HIV, and whom have never been treated for hepatitis with direct antiviral agents. Participants will take maraviroc for 4 weeks in addition to their regular HIV antiretrovirals (ART). The investigators will measure the hepatitis C viral load before, during, and after the 4-week maraviroc time.
