With Campbell Foundation funding, a Wistar Institute scientist studies ways to engineer immune cells to attack HIV-infected cells.
HIV-positive people who use checkpoint inhibitors have side effects, response rates and survival comparable to those of HIV-negative people.
A group of proteins help activate cancer-fighting T cells and also trigger their exhaustion, find Dana Farber and NYU scientists.
Monoclonal antibodies used to prevent COVID-19 in immunocompromised people aren’t active against new virus variants.
A trial is recruiting adults on antiretroviral therapy who have had an undetectable viral load for at least a year.
Customized T-cell treatment is generally safe for people living with HIV, and outcomes are comparable to those of HIV-negative people.
This year’s most widely viewed science news focused on HIV cure research, monkeypox and PEP for sexually transmitted infections.
A “living drug” could potentially eliminate HIV-infected cells, allowing for long-term remission without antiretroviral therapy.
An amfAR grant will help find out. Plus, the AIDS research group also awards three new Mathilde Krim HIV fellowships.
The latest Campbell Foundation research grant will help a UCLA scientist study HIV’s ability to mutate during CAR-T gene therapy.
The first two people treated with the “living drug” remained cancer-free for a decade and can be considered cured.
With $600,000 in amfAR HIV grants, research teams explore CAR-T cells, bFAbs and CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing to eradicate the reservoir.
This strategy entails genetically modifying a person’s stem cells to give rise to T cells that target and destroy cells infected with HIV.
Research shows that CAR-T cells could one day help cure HIV in humans.
CAR-T cells, which have recently made waves in the cancer field, may one day be the basis of a cure for HIV in humans.
Cancer and HIV are invaders that the immune system fails to detect, and the similarities don’t end there.
