    I found this information when surfing HIV forums lookin for info on new anti-retroviral therapies (with a focus on eradication):

    This compound is called "Bavituximab" or "Tarvacin" - at least I think they are the same. Made by a company called Peregrine Pharmaceuticals. About halfway through this article on the NIH site it lists most of the pathogens this is effective against.

    Duke University's Human Vaccine Institute and the Center for HIV/AIDS Vaccine Immunology (CHAVI) is currently investigating PS as a potential target for preventing and treating HIV infection.

    Although it looks promising, it is a bad sign (to me at least) that the stock market value of Peregrine has declined 91% since 1996.

    Not sure if that would be a good sign that they are ripe for a buy out or should that have taken place before they fell that far?
