Prostratin available ?

Sep 5, 2004

I found a website that sells prostratin. Has it been tested in humans yet ?

Response from Dr. Young

According to ARA's (AIDS Research Alliance) webpage, the compound has not yet been tested in humans. This means that there has not been any safety nor efficacy studies yet.

Personally, while I'm very interested to see how ARAs studies will advance. In light of the fact that we have over 20 well studied and FDA-approved drugs to treat HIV,I wouldn't recommend this to any of my patients at this time. Procede with caution. BY
