HIV Hides Out in Bone Marrow, Study Finds

March 8, 2010

HIV "can hide in the bone marrow, avoiding drugs and later awakening to cause illness, according to new research that could point the way toward better treatments for the disease," the Associated Press reports (Schmid, 3/7). The findings, published Monday in the journal Nature, offer "a new target for scientists, but it also presents new challenges because killing off bone marrow cells is a dicey proposition," HealthDay/BusinessWeek reports (Dotinga, 3/8). ABC News' "The World Today" features an interview with the lead author of the study, Kathleen Collins from the University of Michigan, where she describes the findings (Hall, 3/8).
