Here is the patent submitted by Stanford on the production of Prostratin:

http://www.faqs.org/patents/app/20090187046

The patent goes into detail as to the mechanism prostatin uses to go after virus and how to synthetically produce it, making it possible to use as a therapeutic.

Interesting read.

I don't see the news. Almost a decade ago prostratin was considered a powerful addition to HAART able to activate latent HIV. The fact is that they never moved to test it on humans. 10 years spent in the test tube. I was reading about the difficulties in finding prostratin at enough quantities for tests and further development. It seems they are now able to make it in the lab.

xman,

Did you read the links ? The news is the fact that they can make prostratin in sufficient quantities for therapeutic use with the new method mentioned in the patent. A wonderful achievement. Now, they can start clinical trials.

It's still preclinical. Read this from the article posted above:

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration conducted a preliminary review of AIDS Research Alliance’s prostratin data in February 2009. Additional pre-clinical studies will continue over the next year.

This means that human trials will most likely not start before 2011.
