Unlocking the secrets of HIV’s persistence

Thanks to advances in the development of anti-retroviral therapy (ART), patients with HIV are living longer than ever before. And yet, even in patients on very effective, long-term ART, HIV…

Genome editing method targets AIDS virus

By destroying the regulatory genes of the AIDS virus HIV-1 using the genome editing system CRISPR/Cas9, a Japanese research group has succeeded in blocking the production of HIV-1 by infected…

Different diseases elicit distinct sets of exhausted T cells

Epigenomics survey of human immune cells has implications for fighting chronic infections, autoimmunity, and cancer The battle between the human immune system and long-term, persisting infections and other chronic diseases…

Discovery of how HIV hedges its bets opens the door to new therapies

Scientists at Gladstone reveal how the virus decides between fates SAN FRANCISCO, CA, May 10, 2018 — A stem cell is one with infinite possibilities. So, for decades, scientists have…

How a T cell passes HIV sexually to a new host

While it's well known that HIV is transmitted sexually, how the virus crosses genital mucus membranes to reach its targets in the immune system is less well understood. Previous research…

Universal antibody drug for HIV-1 prevention and immunotherapy

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…
