AIDS Research Alliance Gains Exclusive Rights To New Technology from Stanford University
Date:2/8/2010

License will accelerate the development of prostratin—the first in a new class of drugs for the treatment of HIV/AIDS.

(PRWEB) February 8, 2010 --AIDS Research Alliance announced today the signing of a new licensing agreement with Stanford University, transferring exclusive rights of a novel technology developed by Dr. Paul Wender and colleagues of Stanford to AIDS Research Alliance. This new technology (Science, Vol 320, p 649-652, 2 May 2008) will allow AIDS researchers to synthesize the natural compound, prostratin. Early tests conducted at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and on-going pre-clinical studies conducted by AIDS Research Alliance indicate that prostratin targets latent HIV—the virus not killed by existing anti-HIV therapies. Previously, prostatin had to be collected from natural resources—an expensive and cumbersome process.



“Dr. Wender’s genius removes a major hurdle to the therapeutic development of this promising compound,” said Carolyn H. Carlburg, President & CEO of AIDS Research Alliance. The ability to produce prostratin synthetically will significantly reduce future costs, making prostratin a more viable drug candidate, Carlburg said.

“When used in combination with existing antiretroviral drugs, prostratin may one day help treating physicians eradicate all virus from the body—a feat not yet possible using existing therapies,” stated Dr. Stephen J. Brown, Medical Director at AIDS Research Alliance.

Dr Brown explains: “Current therapies suppress the virus, but they do not completely eradicate virus from
