New treatment, approach
Dec 17, 2004
I've been hearing about a recent/new HIV treatment whereas the virus is rendered unable to duplicate itself for good or its mechanism for making copies of itself is totally disabled. Can you please elaborate?

You may be referring to the recent study published in Nature Medicine where French researchers used an inactivated HIV vaccine on a subject's dendritic cells and appeared to achieve modest control of HIV replication in a subset of subjects. That was a very interesting study but needs considerably more work and confirmation before its use could be recommended. KH
