virus filter?

Jan 24, 2006

I heard on the news this morning that a blood filter has been invented which can remove viruses from the blood, viruses such as; Anthrax, Hep C, and HIV. Is this true? Do you have any info?

Response from Dr. Young

The problem with HIV infection is two-fold: free circulating virus (presumably what the filter removes) and infected cells (what the filter doesn't address). BY
