ABIVAX Phase 2a Trial Treats First Patient
« on: February 02, 2015, 02:17:37 PM »
ABIVAX, a leading clinical stage biotech company developing and commercialising anti-viral compounds and human vaccines, today announced that enrolment has been initiated and the first HIV positive patient dosed in a Phase IIa clinical trial of ABX464.
ABX464 is a novel, small molecule inhibiting HIV replication through an entirely new mechanism. For the first time in the treatment of AIDS, this molecule could deliver a long lasting reduction of the viral load after a treatment of only a few weeks.

I read this story today too.
This splicing inhibitor is an interesting new drug class. Resistance seems to be impossible or HIV has to die. Taking the drug only few times a year :)

CROI: "Durable Control of Viral Rebound in Humanized Mice by ABX464 Targeting Rev Functions"


I think that the French invented a pretty interesting stuff. Suppressing VL up to 2 months with a single pill. Monotherapy and completely new dosing schedules could become reality in some years. Maybe :)
