I know a lot of these come and go, but it's always nice to hear there are possibilities like this on the horizon

This study seems to be serious.  Here is an other link giving the substances isolated from that plant:

Just bought stock in the company that's taking it through FDA trials.  Bought and sold, now bought again since it's 50% off it's 52 week high. 
It's recruiting for a phase IIB trial now.  So far the only question marks are that there have been 2 subjects that have taken the drug where it had no or minimal effect.  I have yet to see the company issue an explanation for this.  Otherwise, it seems to be about as potent as the average NRTI.  It looked really good in a study of treatment naive subjects.    For more info go to www.panacos.com (symbol PANC)

Does anyone here know someone on the PA457 trial? I am wondering how it's going on the current phase, which started in June.
