Foot Cream to Kill HIV?

Comments (0)

Ciclopirox, a drug commonly used to treat foot fungus, has been suggested to kill HIV cells. “In a study performed at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, not only does the drug Ciclopiroxrid infectious HIV from cell cultures, but the virus also doesn’t bounce back when the drug is withheld.” – CNet.com

However, because the drug is a topical it does not treat the whole body (a systematic treatment) meaning it only prevents HIV not actually treating it.

Luckily, since the drug is already FDA approved for human use, the process of approval for HIV use might be sped up!

To learn more about the research and interviews head to cnet.com.
