new drugs soon or promising in research lately?

Sep 30, 2003

Dr. Young,

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

Lost and Bewildered in Arizona

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
