Although people living with HIV who have access to the latest medical advances can lead relatively normal lives, in impoverished areas, lacking access to necessary treatments means that, for many...
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation reportedly invested $140 million in a small pump which, when implanted under the skin, can deliver a steady flow of HIV-fighting drugs. According to UNAIDS...
Researchers claim the N6 antibody is able to neutralize 98 percent of HIV strains, including 16 of 20 strains that were resistant to other antibodies of the same class. This and other antibody...
Tests have show that this new device can detect HIV levels in a small blood sample within 20.8 minutes and with 95 percent accuracy. Better diagnosis and testing methods, specifically ones that...
A defense against the development of AIDS in 10% of HIV infected children studied This could open up new avenues of finding a way to rebalance immune systems of all HIV patients.

The rise of HIV is one that can be traced back almost 100 years, thanks to modern genetic profiling. Scientists hope that understanding its origin will help us better determine how to end the virus...
Research conducted by a team from the National Institutes of Health reported a new vulnerable site on HIV for vaccines to target. It is based on an antibody from the blood of an HIV-infected...
Scientist were able to “evolve” an enzyme that consistently removes HIV lurking in human DNA sequences. They did this by consistently mutating an enzyme until it solely targeted HIV sequences.
Researchers find that our T cells express the cell-surface proteins SERINC5 and SERINC3, which reduce the virulence of HIV-1 by more than 100-fold by blocking the ability of the virus to infect new...
