Russian scientists hope for HIV breakthrough
Research medics in St. Petersburg have given a boost to the struggle against HIV and AIDS, by identifying a group of people resistant to HIV.
Researchers have noticed resistance to the virus before, in people with a mutation in the CCR5 gene. But this time it is different, as the group identified had no such mutation.
They believe that a particularly strong immune response is initiated when a virus gets into the lymphocytes, which protect the body against both viruses and tumours, the inauka.ru website reported.
