A second man’s virus went into remission following an HIV-resistant stem cell transplant to treat his cancer.
A new, more accurate HIV reservoir test is a big advance for cure research.
The amfAR funding goes to scientists using nanotechnology and protein “fingerprinting.”
An all-female panel of amfAR-funded HIV scientists share insights on sex differences in the HIV reservoir, gender in research and more.
One avenue in the HIV cure research field involves using agents that prevent reactivation of HIV replication in latently infected cells.
The Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections in Seattle saw many important studies that are advancing the fight against HIV.
Samuel Weissman won second place at the 2019 Regeneron Science Talent Search. Next, he wants to help cure HIV.
“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.
In a study of people with a low but detectable viral load despite adherence to treatment, infected cells were apparently cloning themselves.
WNYC discusses the latest HIV news, including the 2nd person in long-term HIV remission, proposed federal health care cuts, PrEP and U=U.
In a recent small trial, researchers have been unable to detect viable virus in the tissues of two monkeys that received the treatment.
Researchers think a more efficient means of modifying immune cells to resist the virus could yield a stronger effect.
Perhaps amfAR sums it up best: “We’re certainly hopeful.”
Many HIV cure trials take participants off antiretrovirals for a period in order to see how well the investigational treatment works.
HIV cure research has principally focused on latently infected CD4 cells as the backbone of the viral reservoir.
Experimental agent shrinks HIV reservoir, but fails to delay viral rebound.
