Repurposing an HIV target could aid brain injury recovery

Extending CCR5 inhibition beyond treating HIV/AIDS, UCLA researchers showed that blocking CCR5 could promote recovery from stroke and traumatic brain injury (TBI). CC chemokine receptor 5 (CCR5; CD195) is well known for its role in...

Selzentry: Phase III data

The 96-week, double-blind, double-dummy, international Phase III MODERN trial in 797 antiretroviral-naive patients with CCR5-tropic HIV-1 infection showed that once-daily 150 mg maraviroc plus darunavir/ritonavir missed the primary endpoint of non-inferiority to once-daily Truvada emtricitabine/tenofovir...
