A next-generation non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI), MK-1439, demonstrated good antiretroviral activity and tolerability as 7-day monotherapy in a small Phase 1b trial, researchers reported at the 20th Conference  on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI 2013) last week in Atlanta.

Matt Anderson from Merck summarized the study findings at a CROI press conference on Antiretroviral Therapy: New Agents and New Insights.
