- Patients must be ADAP eligible and the cost of tropism testing cannot be covered by a third party (excluding Ryan White funds).
- The Trofile test is required whenever a clinician is considering prescribing the CCR5 antagonist medication maraviroc through Virginia ADAP.
- The client’s virus must demonstrate R5 tropism for maraviroc to be effective.TAP access is available directly through ViiV only.
- To access TAP, providers can register through the ViiV Resource Website or ask their ViiV representative for the form.
