Adam Castillejo, aka the London Patient, continues to advocate for a widely applicable HIV cure.
She has not experienced viral rebound and tests negative for HIV antibodies.
One new approach protects CD4 cells against HIV entry, while another snips out viral genes in infected cells.
Researchers are surprised and concerned that a strain of HIV that is so broadly resistant to treatment even has the capacity to transmit.
Researchers hope to combine gene editing with a less toxic stem cell transplant. Findings may apply to cancer and other illnesses.
The researcher used CRISPR/Cas9 technology to render a pair of twins resistant to HIV.
CCR5-blocking antibody leads to long-term HIV suppression
Interfering with this receptor on immune cells could have harmful health consequences.
A second man’s virus went into remission following an HIV-resistant stem cell transplant to treat his cancer.
Two gene-editing experts said Jiankui He’s actions were a “gross violation” of Chinese regulations and international standards.
“The Düsseldorf Patient” has been off HIV meds only since November 2018, so it is much too early to determine whether he has been cured.
Researchers think a more efficient means of modifying immune cells to resist the virus could yield a stronger effect.
Timothy Brown may have company after a man’s virus went into remission following an HIV-resistant stem cell transplant to treat his cancer.
Chinese scientist claims to have edited embryos to make children HIV resistant.
Today, with better understanding of the complex task at hand, cure researchers are investigating multiple avenues and taking the long view.
Researchers believe this genetic mutation protected against the 14th century-bubonic plague.
