Mark N Polizzotto, Alison M Street, Edwina Wright

Abstract

The treatment of patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and hemophilia involves unique challenges that may be addressed with novel antiretroviral classes. We describe the safety and efficacy of enfuvirtide therapy in 4 patients with severe hemophilia A. Although local skin reactions were common, neither local nor systemic bleeding worsened. Three patients achieved undetectable HIV loads with enfuvirtide salvage regimens.
