I saw a mention of the company working on a better forulation for the future.Does this mean there will somehow be an oral delivery system(pill)or is it just a fat of life that all entry inhibitors with always have to be administered sub q ?

Response from Dr. Henry

For the near future T-20 will have to be injected twice daily. There is interest in depot or other forms of administration of T-20. T-1249 (another Trimeris/Roche fusion inhibitor) can be injected once daily. Several companies are working are oral fusion inhibitors. KH

Smallpox vaccine a risk for us?
