Question

What's the latest on the injectable that Charlie Sheen is bragging about in Variety? http://variety.com/2017/biz/news/charlie-sheen-hiv-diagnosis-cytodyn-1202410440/

Answer

Cytodyn is enrolling two studies right now using their once per week CCR5 inhibitor injection.

One of the studies is looking for patients who have a viral load and who have HIV that has developed resistance to 3 drug classes. They will start PRO-140 plus two new medications to which their virus is susceptible. Patients have to have a R5 tropic virus.

The other study is looking for people who patients with undetectable viral load who want to stop their daily oral medications to switch to their weekly injection as monotherapy.
