    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.

    Anti-Phospholipid Therapy / Bavituximab Anti-Viral

    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?
