CRISPR gene editing eliminates HIV in mice
Trying to mimic the “Berlin Patient” cure, researchers edited the CCR5 gene in the immune stem cells of a man with leukemia and HIV.
A third of mice treated with gene editing technique plus long-acting antiretrovirals showed no remaining traces of HIV.
This finding may eventually make HIV gene therapies more affordable and accessible.
