Inhibition of Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 Replication by Hydroxychloroquine in T Cells and Monocytes

Hydroxychloroquine HIV Q Plus News

“Chloroquine and its analogue hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) have been shown to inhibit a variety of viral infections including influenza and adenovirus through blockade of viral entry via inhibition of endosomal acidification.”

“HCQ does appear to affect production of infectious HIV-1 virions because viral isolates from HCQ-treated cells could not infect target CEM cells. These data suggest that HCQ may be useful adjunctive therapy in the treatment of HIV-1 infection.”
