Response from Dr. Young

Hello Dr. Titas and thank you for posting.

This is a provocative in vitro (test tube) study that suggests that acyclovir, a drug that we commonly use for treating herpes may have activity against HIV. To my knowledge (and literature search) there have been no clinical trials to suggest that acyclovir has clinically significant effectiveness.


My labs are back
How would an HIV cure be defined?
