Human cells have an intrinsic capacity to destroy HIV. However, the virus has evolved to contain a gene that blocks this ability. When this gene is removed from the virus, the innate human immune system destroys HIV by mutating it t...

Animal Model That Replicates Human Immune Response Against HIV Could Simplify Vaccine Trials

Health : Medical News Today

One of the challenges to HIV vaccine development has been the lack of an animal model that accurately reflects the human immune response to the virus and how the virus evolves to evade that response. In Science Translational Medicin...
