Abstract: CSIR Biosciences investigated the anti-HIV properties of a plant indigenous to the Eastern Cape, commonly used by traditional healers. A natural compound isolated from the plant, coded BP36, inhibited infectivity of HIV-1 pseudoviruses. The data suggests that BP36 is an entry inhibitor and may therefore be suitable to be developed as a microbicide to control the sexual transmission of HIV.
