Visit AIDSinfo to Explore Information on Investigational HIV Drugs

Are you looking for information on HIV medicines that are in development, also called investigational drugs? AIDSinfo provides fact sheets for more than 60 investigational HIV drugs and vaccines. These drugs and vaccines are currently being studied in clinical trials and are not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for sale in the United States to treat or prevent HIV.

AIDSinfo provides information for both patients and health professionals: a patient fact sheet includes an overview of the drug and information on clinical trials studying the drug, and a health professional fact sheet includes more detailed, scientific information about the drug, including information on the pharmacology of the drug and on adverse events identified in clinical trials.

The latest investigational fact sheets that have been added to the AIDSinfo Drug Database include VRC-HIVADV014-00-VP and VRC-HIVDNA016-00-VP, both of which are therapeutic HIV vaccines. The lefitolimod, romidepsin, and VAC-3S fact sheets have recently been updated based on research that was presented at the Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI).
