T cell receptor

Oct 22, 2008

I know that at Boston Massachusetts General Hospital, they are ready to start a clinical trial to test a new chemio-molecules targeting specifically hiv infected cells, even the latent reservoirs. Do you think thatT-cell receptor may be used as a tool to detect viral peptide epitopes on infected cells and therefore makes it possible for the first time to eliminate latent viral reservoirs, which cannot be achieved with currently available treatments ?

Please answer any case. I' m interested to partecipate to experimental clinical trial.

Response from Dr. Moyle

I am not aware of this trial so do not feel qualified to comment. I would suggest contacting Mass General to find out more and volunteer Sorry not to be much use Dr Moyle
