A brain-targeted antiviral nanoformulations of triphosphorylated nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (nano-NRTI) were developed and evaluated using several in vitro and in vivo models. These drug formulations demonstrated the ability to penetrate the blood-brain barrier (BBB), accumulate in infected macrophages, and inhibit the HIV-1 activity in humanized mouse model of HIV-1 infection in the brain.
