Transcript of Achievement

How does it effect our generation?
Rutgers' Research In Our Generation
Rutgers University's involvement
How do we feel about the topic?
Even though the antifungal ciclopirox did not trigger the apoptosis of infected HIV-1 cells, the concept of triggering the apoptosis of infected cells represents a breakthrough idea that can be utilized in other research opportunities for HIV.
Since Ciclopirox is already approved by the FDA and the EMA, physicians can readily prescribe this drug to patients with out waiting for the drug developmental process when the drug is finally ready.
Personal affects on physicians
What the research supports
Supports patients afflicted with the particular type of HIV known as HIV-1 and its associated strains
Drug Is Found to Eradicate HIV Permanently from Infected Cells
Published on Tuesday, September 24, 2013

The problem: currently people are using drugs that just keep HIV at bay rather than eliminate the problem completely
The solution: Ciclopirox, which causes infected cells to undergo apoptosis/commit suicide
Completely eradicates HIV from cell culture
It is approved by the FDA and EMA
