Sep 30, 2003
Just had to ask, any new drugs promising in research to hit approval?

Response from Dr. Young
This has been a tremendous year for HIV drug discovery-- with the likelihood of 4 new drugs-- enfuvirtide (T-20, Fuzeon), atazanavir (Reyataz) and emtricitabine (FTC, Emtriva) already here, and fosamprenavir (908) likely to come soon.
All are very encouraging products with distinct advantages and characteristics. A full discourse on the new drugs in beyond the scope of this answer, but there is a lot of info on these at TheBody (check out recent conference coverage). BY
