Gero Hütter

Oct 9, 2011

Hello, do you know if Gero Hütter group made investigation after the bone marrow transplantation about how the immun cells responded to the hiv virus. I mean the body produced more t cells or some type of cytokines or some antibodies...? Do you know any article about it? Thank You!

Response from Dr. Holodniy

There has been some follow-up now 3 years after the transplant, where the investigators report that no evidence of viral replication can be found and that all stem cell derived cells in the blood and gut lack the R5 co-receptor, necessary for HIV to gain entry into cells.
