New research could lead to a HIV cure
22 October 2017 | Written by La redazione
Susana Valente, a researcher at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) in Florida, has shown that a new compound could stop reproducing HIV virus in infected cells. This new approach, defined by the same Valentine “Block-and-lock”, blocks the reactivation of the virus in cells even during treatment interruptions. The next step is trying to figure out whether longer treatments can lead to more durable or even permanent results.
