Locating Hiding Places Can Lead To New HIV Treatment

Posted on July 6, 2009


Canadian researchers have located the HIV hiding place in the body.  A long-lived immune system cell was reported as the refuge place for HIV. 

Until now researchers hadn’t known of these areas, but a Canadian research team has discovered where these HIV reservoirs are.  The new findings mean that stronger and  more anti viral drugs are not the answer.

Discovering these hiding places can lead to new treatment or even eradicating the disease.
