Scientists have discovered a possible way to hinder cell-to-cell transfer of HIV, and could perhaps prevent he progression to AIDS.
It turns out that apes may have been infected by a HIV-like virus for millions of years.
Despite numerous treatments, new findings published in the journal EBioMedicine show that HIV is continuing to grow in some patients who are thought to be responding well to treatment.
Could some dating apps be to blame for a recent surge of STDs in Rhode Island?
Scientists have discovered the origins for two of the four known groups of human AIDS viruses. It turns out that their origins can be found in western lowland gorillas.
Researchers at Belgium's University of Leuvan have discovered an extremely lethal strain of HIV that holds the power to develop into AIDS within just three years of infection.
It turns out that the rapid evolution of HIV may actually be slowing its ability to cause AIDS. Scientists have discovered that the same ability that has allowed the virus to develop resistance to patients' natural immunity is also hindering its spread.
Scientists seeking a cure for AIDS say they have been inspired, not crushed, by a major setback in which two HIV positive patients believed to have been cured found the virus re-invading their bodies once more.
Scientists may have just identified a potential drug to block AIDS. They've found the precise chain of molecular events in the human body that drives the death of most of the immune system's CD4 T cells as an HIV infection leads to AIDS.
Scientists and clinicians from five leading UK universities will begin a groundbreaking clinical trial next year to test a possible cure for HIV infection.
Do our genes hold the key to future AIDS therapies? Using a supercomputer, scientists analyzed the genomes of thousands of strains of the HIV virus and have produced the first map of human AIDS resistance.
In a long-awaited finding, a team of Chinese and US scientists has determined the high-resolution atomic structure of a cell-surface receptor that most strains of HIV use to get into human immune cells. The researchers also showed where maraviroc, an HIV drug, attaches to cells and blocks HIV’s en...
