Enzyme natrural protection against HIV

Jun 13, 2005

Dr. Im a medical student, im prepared a HIV exposition for a congress to celebrate in october 2005. In a press medium I read about a few patients in New York ( year 2005) that have a natural protection HIV, a serodiscordant couples in wich one have HIV+ and the other remains exposed but uninfeccted. Its possible that a enzyme deficience (CD4 ligand receptor) offers genetic protection against HIV? Dr. thanks for answer my question.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I suggest you look at the PubMed website to see what articles have been published on the topic.
