Life Saver: Robert Vince, a Minnesota superhero, creates drugs to combat diseases like AIDS and cancer. How many millions of lives has Dr. Robert Vince saved? It’s hard to put an exact number on it, but millions certainly, if not a good deal more. Vince invents drugs, and before he invented the anti-viral drug Ziagen, now known by its generic name abacavir, HIV/AIDS was a fast death sentence. Ziagen was the first drug specifically designed to combat AIDS that worked. Vince invented other anti-viral drugs, which when taken together, can make the disease more manageable and dramatically reduce transmission of HIV from infected pregnant mothers to their babies.
