Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have found a novel way to engineer key cells of the immune system so they remain resistant to infection with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. This is extremely good news and shows how important gene therapy and it’s research is. Even if clinical trials are some 3-5 years away it provides hope for those infected and affected.
