FDA says experimental anti-HIV drug is effective

Data for the Boehringer protease inhibitor, called Aptivus, previously known as tipranavir, "provide evidence of the additional antiviral effect over currently available antiretroviral regimens in a population which are 'heavily pretreated,' " Food and Drug Administration reviewers said.
