Theratechnologies’ Trogarzo (ibalizumab-uiyk), an antiviral medicine that prevents human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) from multiplying in your body, has been approved by the FDA for 30-Second Intravenous (IV) Push, simplifying HIV treatment for heavily treatment-experienced population.

Trogarzo is administered intravenously (IV) once every 14 days by a trained medical professional
