Anything coming out of the pipeline?

Jan 29, 2003

Dr. Young: Hi. Any new meds to hit the streets soon? Thanks for your service on Stan

Response from Dr. Young

Stan- thanks for your question.

Yes, there are products in the pipeline that should soon "hit the streets". In 2003, we should see at least three new HIV medications approved by the US FDA.

The fusion inhibitor, enfuvirtide (Fuzeon, T-20) and new protease inhibitors, atazanavir and fos-amprenavir (GW908) either have or will submit papers seeking approval by the FDA this year. Street talk has it that all three drugs should be available within months.

I'd advise you to keep checking the postings or meeting reviews on TheBody or the individual pharmaceutical's websites (Roche, BMS and GSK, respectively)for an up to date information about the new products. -BY
