A team of British scientists may be on the brink of developing a cure for HIV. Researchers recently tested their pioneering therapy on the first of 50 participants in a clinical trial, The Sunday Times reported. Early tests on the first patient, a 44-year-old British social worker, show the virus is undetectable in the man's blood. "This is one of the first serious attempts at a full cure for HIV," Mark Samuels of Britain's National Institute for Health Research told The Sunday Times, Britain's largest-selling national Sunday newspaper.
Adrenal cancer researchers at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center are seeing the results of their laboratory studies translate to a clinical trial to test a potential new therapy in patients.
Wistar's Dr. Luis Montaner leads a Philadelphia-based clinical trial - the largest of its kind to date - focused on depleting the viral reservoir in HIV patients and potentially leading toward a cure for the disease.
A phase 1 clinical trial testing a novel combination therapy developed by scientists at VCU Massey Cancer Center slowed the growth of cancer in the majority of trial participants, which were patients with advanced solid tumors.
Danish scientists say they are expecting new results that have left them "on the brink" of “finding a mass distributable and affordable cure to HIV." Not just to keep it at bay, but to cure it for good. Clinical trials are testing a...
