There is a need to develop new treatments for patients living with HIV-1, as HIV-1 rapidly acquires resistance to treatment options. Researchers at Purdue University have developed a new class of HIV-1 protease inhibitors. Compared to darunavir, a leading FDA approved drug, these compounds were 100 times more potent in cell culture. Additionally, the compounds have improved metabolic stability over previous protease inhibitors. The primary application for these compounds is for the treatment of multidrug-resistant HIV-1.
