ENZYMES LIKE LYSIN FOR HIV INFECTION
Aug 22, 2002
Hi Doctors, I recently read over a report on how the enzyme lysin I believe was tested in laboratories successfully against anthrax spores and other bacterias. My question is, are there enzymes such as lysin in lab trials right now studying the effectiveness against HIV?
Thanks for all your support.
Response from Dr. Young
No studies on HIV, since the enzyme lysin is very specific for certain bacterial cell walls (like that found in Bacillus anthracis- anthrax). -BY
