Abstract

We describe the antiviral effect of maraviroc in a patient who had been shedding high levels of HIV-1 in seminal fluid for three years despite an undetectable blood plasma viral load. Adding maraviroc to HAART stopped the seminal shedding. We discuss the mechanisms involved and the effect on sexual transmission.
