Research shows that in addition to HIV’s ability to lay dormant in the blood/lymphoid system, the virus may also lay dormant in the central nervous system, delineating another challenge in creating a cure.
The long fight to end HIV/AIDS has seen real progress spurred by innovative research, prevention, treatment and education. But our nation's ambitious goal of ending the HIV epidemic by 2030 is nevertheless in peril. Here are ways to step up the fight.
An experimental HIV vaccine has been found to induce broadly neutralizing antibody precursors among a small group of volunteers in a Phase 1 study. The findings suggest that a two-dose regimen of the vaccine, given eight weeks apart, can elicit immune responses against the human immunodeficiency virus.
An immune response that likely evolved to help fight infections appears to be the mechanism that drives human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) into a latent state, lurking in cells only to erupt anew, researchers at Duke Health report.
Researchers at Duke have published new work in a scientific journal, showing that a potential HIV vaccine component proves effective in primate study.
New research shows people living with HIV are twice as likely to be hospitalized if they get monkeypox.
