Healthy Living: AIDS Drug & Strokes

An AIDS drug may become the first ever pharmaceutical treatment from a human gene discovery to help patients recover from stroke.

In Healthy Living, Courtney Hunter explains how researchers at UCLA discovered that people missing a certain gene recover from stroke well.

The Maraviroc trial will be run at UCLA, Yale, and Burke Rehabilitation Institute.

Since the drug is already FDA approved for safety in HIV patients, the trial is already in phase two.

If you are interested in signing up for the trial, contact Dr. Carmichael at scarmichael@mednet.ucla.edu.
