Cholestrol new target in HIV battle? | Queer Landia

Researchers in Europe and the United States have found a method to prevent HIV from damaging a person’s immune system. The discovery may lead to an effective vaccine to prevent AIDS.

From Rueters:

Researchers working in laboratories on the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) found it is unable to damage the immune system if cholesterol is removed from the virus’s membrane.

“It’s like an army that has lost its weapons but still has flags, so another army can recognize it and attack it,” said Adriano Boasso of Imperial College London, who led the study.

The team now plans to investigate how to use this way of inactivating the virus and possibly develop it into a vaccine.
