A speedy overview of the major scientific findings presented at the International AIDS Conference in Amsterdam (AIDS 2018)
The “kick-and-kill” strategy—waking up latently infected immune cells so as to kill them—did not reduce participants’ viral DNA.
This disappointment highlights the challenge of translating animal research into human trials.
Scientists have discovered a swifter and more precise way to edit the genome of immune cells, opening doors for cancer and HIV therapies.
Understanding the importance of basic HIV research and clinical trials—and the benefits of being undetectable
Findings provide reassurance on ethics of cure studies.
Scientists found this receptor on the CD4 cells of so-called elite controllers of the virus.
Take a survey on HIV cure research.
It’s just one episode of “HIV Matters,” a (free!) podcast series from the University of North Carolina’s Department of Medicine.
A recent study found that agents used to wake up resting HIV-infected cells probably work only on 5 percent of such cells.
Scientists tested the effects of the broadly neutralizing antibody PGT121 and the immune-stimulating agent GS-9620 in monkeys.
According to a pair of recent studies, meth was associated with certain HIV-related genetic and immune changes.
Scientists succeeded in editing the animals’ stem cells to resist an HIV-like virus and ultimately shrink their viral reservoir.
Researchers say CD32 is not a biomarker for immune cells latently infected with HIV but one for actively infected cells.
An update from the director of the Basic Science, Vaccines and Cure Project at Treatment Action Group (TAG).
For example: Hep C cures have meant fewer people to treat and fewer transmissions to potential patients.
