New AIDS Drug
Found By Jews

London, (JTA) — Three
Jewish scientists are leading
the development of a new
drug that may provide hope
for people with AIDS.
Professor Raymond Dwek,
47, of Oxford University's Ex
eter College heads the Oxford
Glycobiology Unit, which
developed the drug, dubbed
Oxaid.
Dr. Gary Jacob, 41, of New
York, is director of the Searle
support group, which works
with the unit. The research is
supported by Searle Phar-
maceuticals, a subsidiary of
the Monsanto Co.
The third scientist is Dr.
Abraham Karpas, 51, who
holds dual Israeli-British na-
tionality and is assistant
director of research at Cam-
bridge University's clinical
school.
Oxaid has been patented by
Oxford University. It has been
approved by the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration for
testing on people in the
United States. The tests are
scheduled to start in a few
weeks.
"In a test tube, it's a cure,"
Dwek told the Jewish
Chronicle.
But Jacobs cautioned that
"until there is some human
testing and response, we are
trying to temper our excite-
ment."
Dwek explained that Oxaid
works by altering the coating
of the virus that causes AIDS,
or acquired immune deficien-
cy syndrome, an invariably
fatal disease.
"It breaks the cycle of viral
replication, and therefore the
virus does not go on to infect
other cells," he said.
Possible side effects will not
be known until after testing.
