University of Hong Kong (UKH), Nanjing University, and City University of Hong Kong researchers, working with Shanghai Targetdrug Co., said the TD-0680 molecule could be developed for a microbicide to "prevent HIV sexual transmission" -- the cause of more than 90 percent of HIV infections in China.
