Hello, doctor. My name is Felipe, from Brazil
what is your feeling about the monoclonal antibodies? Yesterday, the 25th, the site of cytodin published a document in which they expressed optimism about the release of pro-140, for example. what do you think?

Hello Felipe and thanks for posting from Brazil.
Monoclonal antibodies are used in a wide range of applications- including diagnostics and some medical therapeutics.
Pro140 is a humanized monoclonal antibody that, like maraviroc, blocks the CCR5 HIV co-receptor. Still in early (phase 2) stage development, it will still take time to test the effectiveness in larger scale human studies.
For more information about Pro-140, take a look at AIDS Info drug database.
Be well, BY
