Select antiviral cells can access HIV’s hideouts

Persistent infected cells live in germinal centers When someone is HIV-positive and takes antiretroviral drugs, the virus persists in a reservoir of infected cells. Those cells hide out in germinal…

Unique antibodies open path toward new HIV vaccines

A family of broadly neutralizing antibodies from a chronically infected donor provides a schematic for designing vaccines and treatments that target multiple strains of the virus. Thanks to its diversity…

How the border guards fail in HIV infection

The barrier between the gut and the bloodstream is severely damaged in the first few weeks of infection by HIV-1 virus. This can allow whole microbes in the intestine, as…
