Published by: BiotechPrimer Written by: Emily Burke, PhD For many years, a diagnosis of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) was a death sentence. It seemed unthinkable in the 1980s, but the medical community now largely treats the disease as a chronic illness. This profound shift arose through the development of highly active antiretroviral therapies (HAART). These medicines inhibit the replication and spread… [Read More]
Published by: One Zero Written by: Emily Mullin Antiretroviral drugs make HIV manageable, but gene therapies could eliminate the virus altogether — provided the treatments can be made safe and economical In the mid-1990s, scientists made a curious but remarkable discovery: A man named Stephen Crohn seemed virtually immune to HIV. In the years before that discovery, Crohn’s boyfriend and many of… [Read More]
