the new antiretroviral drug called Viread
There's a lot of excitement about the new antiretroviral drug called Viread (VEER-ee-ad).
It's the first HIV drug approved this year.
Viread (tenofovir) is the first nucleoTIDE reverse transcriptase inhibitor. It's similar in structure to the nucleoSIDE reverse transcriptase inhibitors...but might be more active.
