Scientists accidently discovered a drug that may stop weight gain

Scientists at the Yale University have accidentally discovered a drug that enables foodies to eat more without gaining weight. While creating a morbidly obese...
A newly developed inhibitor (compound 25a) binds to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) reverse transcriptase, a viral protein essential for HIV replication.

New compound targets drug resistant HIV mutant

Scientists at the Yale University have developed compounds that maintain anti-HIV movement against drug-resistant mutants superior to anything FDA-endorsed medications. The compounds restrain the capacity of...
