Washington, D.C. (November 30, 2006) — Seventy-seven new medicines and vaccines are in development to treat HIV/AIDS and related conditions, according to a survey released today by the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA).

Recent reports show AIDS has killed more than 25 million people and infected an estimated 40 million people worldwide. As many as 1.2 million U.S. residents are estimated to have HIV infection.

“We are greatly encouraged by the new, critically-important medicines in development to treat HIV/AIDS,” said PhRMA President and CEO Billy Tauzin. “PhRMA member companies are leading the search for vaccines and treatments for this terrible disease.”

PhRMA’s survey reveals that of the 77 new medicines in development, researchers are studying 19 new vaccines and 35 antivirals. These drugs are either in human clinical trials or are awaiting approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
