Etravirine for HIV

Hey guys, I just saw that Tibotec recently got FDA approval for its new non-nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitor called Etravirine. I couldn't find out more about how it works, but apparently it was approved under the rapid assessment process for potentially life-saving drugs. Here's the link to the article, http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5iCFQR1SKu681KqBBwrXJg1B6q5PAD8U8MS3G0 but I think you might be more interested in looking at the drugs Tibotec has in the pipeline which you can look at here http://www.tibotec.com/bgdisplay.jhtml?itemname=HIV_drugdev . I couldn't figure out if Etravirine was one of these on the list, but they're still interesting.

Etravirine? Seriously, couldn't the marketing folks come up with a better name than that?
