Science issues concern about HIV remission monkey study

The journal Science is warning readers that an article it published on a much-hyped potential HIV remission approach didn't include all the facts. In a so-called "editorial expression of concern"…

CROI 2019: Gene editing delays viral rebound during HIV treatment interruption

Researchers think a more efficient means of modifying immune cells to resist the virus could  yield a stronger effect. Editing the genes of CD4 cells to make them resistant to…

CROI 2019: When undetectable is unachievable: study offers insights into HIV persistence

Effective antiretroviral therapy (ART) for HIV maintains individual health and prevents transmission of the virus to others. For most people living with HIV, ART reduces viral load—the amount of HIV…

CROI 2019: Shared housing compared to living alone: higher CD4, lower viral load and reduced inflammation in macaques

Despite being a basic science poster, the impact of community contact for research animals might have implications for interpreting the results of these studies. Researchers from Johns Hopkins University in…

Researchers uncover new facets of HIV’s ‘arms race’ with human defense system

Study could contribute to new therapies 4 March 2019: A new study reveals details about the evolutionary contest between HIV and the human immune system that could one day improve…

Mathematicians develop model of spatial distribution of HIV and other viruses in the body for the first time

RUDN mathematicians created a mathematical model to describe spatial distribution of viruses in the body. It analyzes the growth of a virus population in space and time and evaluates the…

CEA-Leti breakthrough opens path to new vaccine for HIV using lipid-nanoparticle-delivery technology

Lipidots platform strengthens immune response to protein that is key to HIV vaccine; results presented in Nature Publishing Group’s npj Vaccines  GRENOBLE, France – Feb. 27, 2019 – Leti, a research institute of CEA…

Custom-made proteins may help create antibodies to fight HIV

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — A new way to create proteins that can sneak through HIV’s protective coating may be a step toward understanding the key components needed for developing a…

New insight on potent HIV antibody could improve vaccine design

Early mutation in neutralizing antibody gives it flexibility to adapt to virus's changes DURHAM, N.C., 20 February 2019 - In the quest to develop an effective HIV vaccine, researchers have…

Using crystals to unpick how viruses work

Researchers at Cardiff University have used x-ray crystallography and computer simulation to get a closer look at how viruses bind cells and cause infection. The new insight could help in…
