The results provide hope in the ongoing battle against antibiotic resistance, a rising threat as deadly bacteria continue to evolve to render many modern […]

Header Banner: AZT the development name for zidovudine was the first drug launched to treat HIV. It was used in high doses and as monotherapy, causing horrendous side effects and resistance in the HIV virus. In the subsequent 30 years clinical trials has led to the development of single tablet, once daily regimens to treat HIV with limited side effects. Now a two pill combination called Truvada can be given to individuals to prevent the risk of acquiring HIV (shown in the DarkDrug logo).
