HIV CURE?

Scientists create HIV ‘assassins’

Monday

WELSH scientists said they had developed cutting-edge “bionic assassins” to seek out and destroy the HIV virus.

A team from Cardiff University has discovered a way to genetically engineer the body’s own immune cells in a find which could revolutionise HIV treatment.

Experts at the university also hope that the breakthrough could be applied to cancer by finding a way of using the body’s own immune cells to attack invading cells and tumours.

The team’s genetically-engineered killer T-cells are able to identify and destroy HIV even when the virus mutates to avoid detection. It is thought that the breakthrough could lead to the development of more effective treatments for HIV and could even slow down or prevent the onset of Aids.

My husband and i got very cheerful Michael could carry out his analysis via the ideas he acquired from your own site. It’s not at all simplistic to just choose to be releasing tactics that other people might have been making money from. And now we understand we have the writer to give thanks to for that. The most important illustrations you’ve made, the easy site navigation, the friendships you assist to create – it’s got everything terrific, and it is letting our son in addition to the family recognize that that matter is amusing, which is pretty fundamental. Many thanks for everything!
