DFH Pharma, USA Partners with Hetero Group, INDIA to Develop 2nd Generation HIV Maturation Inhibitor Drugs
Date:4/3/2013

GAITHERSBURG, Md., April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- DFH Pharma, Inc. ("DFH"), a privately held pharmaceutical company focused on the development of HIV therapeutics, announced that it has entered into a Research and Product Development Agreement with Hetero Group ("HETERO"), a privately held research-based global pharmaceutical group with headquarters in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India, to develop the next generation of HIV maturation inhibitor drugs.

The focus of the joint R&D effort is to expedite research into and the development of new maturation inhibitor drugs by combining DFH Pharma's background and experience in HIV therapeutic development with Hetero's world class expertise in product development, medicinal chemistry, manufacture of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and finished dosage forms.  "We are very excited to be working with Hetero, to develop the next generation of HIV maturation inhibitor drugs," said Dr. Carl Wild , DFH Pharma President & CEO. "The partnership will provide DFH access to Hetero's wor
