Asian medicinal plant may help cure HIV

A medicinal plant found in Asia which contains a potent anti-HIV compound more powerful than the drug AZT, scientists say. Azidothymidine (AZT) is an antiretroviral medication used to prevent and treat HIV. The compound, patentiflorin A, is derived from the willow-Ieaved Justicia, and was identified in a screening of more than 4,500 plant extracts for their effect against the HIV virus.
