A research team led by scientists at AIDS Institute and Department of Microbiology, Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine of The University of Hong Kong (HKU) invents a universal antibody…

Research findings promise new avenues for antiviral therapeutic development

Atreca announces publication of HIV research in Cell REDWOOD CITY, Calif., May 3, 2018 — Atreca, Inc., a biotechnology company focused on developing novel therapeutics based on a deep understanding…

Gene editing holds promise for shrinking HIV ‘reservoir’

Study mimicking Timothy Ray Brown’s HIV-resistant mutation led to fewer latently infected cells — a key step toward driving the virus into remission without the need for antivirals. By transplanting…

Genetically altered broadly neutralizing antibodies protect monkeys from HIV-like virus

NIH scientists report single dose elicited long-term protection. Two genetically modified broadly neutralizing antibodies (bNAbs) protected rhesus macaques from an HIV-like virus, report scientists at the National Institute of Allergy…

New way that HIV evades the immune system

Scientists have just discovered a new mechanism by which HIV evades the immune system, and which shows precisely how the virus avoids elimination. The new research shows that HIV targets…

PARADIGM: A collaborative initiative on patient engagement kicks-off

PARADIGM (Patients Active in Research and Dialogues for an Improved Generation of Medicines), a new initiative regarding patient engagement in research and development of medicines, was launched this week during…

Has basic science in HIV research stalled?

Now that effective therapies for active HIV infection are broadly available, there should be renewed focus on basic science regarding HIV, said experts contacted by MedPage Today. Without it, they…

HIV cell dysfunction discovery sheds light on how virus works

A new study has revealed that certain immune cells behave differently in HIV-infected patients than they do in healthy individuals. A team of chemical and biomedical engineers from the Cockrell…

How does HIV escape cellular booby traps?

Human immunodeficiency virus -- HIV -- is believed to have evolved from a simian immunodeficiency virus, or SIV, that originated in chimpanzees. How SIV made the species jump has remained…

‘Molecular scissors’ could be key to cutting off diseases including HIV infection

Newly discovered pathway could be drug target, researchers say COLUMBUS, Ohio – One way to fight diseases including HIV infection and autoimmune disorders could involve changing how a naturally occurring…
