Description: PRO 140 is a humanized monoclonal antibody against CCR5 that blocks human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. CCR5 is one of the principal portals used by HIV to enter cells and represents a promising target for a new generation of HIV therapies. PRO 140 inhibits viral entry into immune system cells via a novel mechanism of action, has the potential to protect healthy cells, and to be broadly active against viruses that have acquired resistance to existing classes of antiretroviral therapies.
