Abstract:

Drugs that block the entry of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) into host cells abrogate the establishment of a productive infection and should ideally diminish the chances of HIV-1 developing resistance. This review will give an overview of the mechanism by which the envelope glycoprotein mediates HIV-1 entry and will summarize current drug developments.
