    huge increase in short interest

    I haven't heard of integrase inhibitors, but in
    any case, I agree
    with you about a PI for HCV
    being a blockbuster. HCV is quite prevalent in Asia.
    Since interferon + ribivirin does clear the virus in a
    small minority of patients it is quite likely that any
    PI in combination with interferon and/or ribivirin
    will increase the long-term response of HCV patients.
    It has been quite sometime since they announced the
    3 dimensional atomic structure of the protease
    enzyme. I wonder what if any progress they have made
    since then. Any news would be
    interesting.
