Scientist Find Way to Block HIV


Scientists at Northwestern University and Vanderbilt University say they have discovered a new strategy to starve the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) to death by blocking its nutrient and sugar pipeline.

They found the switch that turns on the immune cell´s abundant sugar and nutrient pipeline and blocked it with an experimental compound.

"This discovery opens new avenues for further research to solve today´s persisting problems in treating HIV infection: avoiding virus resistance to medicines, decreasing the inflammation that leads to premature aging, and maybe even one day being able to cure HIV infection," says Dr. Richard D´Aquila.
