There are more than 10 dozen anti-HIV drugs in the developmental pipeline that pharmaceutical manufacturers and other research institutions are working on; that's roughly 50% more than were being worked on a year ago. The entry inhibitor category continues to show strong promise with 40 candidates'15 more than this time last year.
