fusion inhibitors
Nov 20, 2004

Is there a pill form of any fusion inhibitors coming soon?

Response from Mr. Kurtyka

Fuzeon is the only fusion inhibitor currently approved by the FDA. Fusion inhibitors are part of a bigger classification of drugs called entry inhibitors which also includes attachment inhibitors, CXCR4 inhibitors and CCR5 inhibitors. There are quite a few agents in these categories that are in various stages of clinical trials and as far as I know all of them are oral agents.

Check out the following link for some detailed information about entry inhibitors: Entry Inhibitors
