Discovery Could Lead To New HIV, AIDS Therapy
Scientists have engineered a new molecule they say can block infection with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.
Researchers from the Scripps Research Institute say they’ve found a new way to prevent HIV from infecting cells, even if it’s present in the body.
The study was published online today in the journal Nature. Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson speaks with lead author Michael Farzan.
