NEW YORK (PIX11) — A molecule that’s used to enhance the flavors in soy sauce may help HIV patients from becoming resistant to drug therapies.
It’s called EFdA.
Researchers say it’s less likely to cause resistance in HIV patients because it’s activated quickly and is broken down more slowly.
The molecule is being tested by the pharmaceutical company Merck.
More studies are needed before it will be available as a treatment for HIV.
