A team from Pasteur's Institute has identified the sensitivity of cells in the so-called "deposits" of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus, leading to AIDS, which has been eliminated. According to medical sources, so far antiretroviruses prevent the virus caused by the Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) and act against the virus and its attack, but it is impossible to overcome infected cells.
Spanish Asier Saez-Cirión, head of the research, "Now is our job to touch the cells and characterize the infected cells to get them out of the HIV-infected organism."
According to sources, it is a step towards a possible recovery for patients, thanks to the removal of cells that act as a deposit, as well as water reservoirs or a "latent virus". The discovery meant the knowledge of a formula that would only eliminate the AIDS virus that slowed down its development.
Discovered by the French researchers who co-ordinated a Spanish scientist who prevented the activity with HIV inhibitors, as well as discovering how the virus can infect cells. However, the method will not be applied to patients yet, the research published in the Cell Metabolism magazine is being explained.
