"While HIV-1 latency is likely to be a multifactorial process, we have shown that inhibiting the methylation of the provirus contributes to an almost complete reactivation of latent HIV-1," said lead author Steven E. Kauder.

"Combined with other areas of our investigation into HIV latency, this research provides important new knowledge about the process and opens many new pathways for future study," said Dr. Verdin, senior author of the study.

That's outstanding.

Procaine is a demethylating agent.  Given it is off patent, I would think it could be readily used in a publicly sponsored medical trial to at least demonstrate some efficacy in humans.

Sounds like it could be used against HIV. Could be promising. Now will they get this into some kind of clinical trial before the next 10 years :( I hope we have progress long before then.
