For the first time, US scientists have shown that HIV-fighting cells engineered from human stem cells can suppress the virus in living human tissue in mice.
The team, from UCLA in Los Angeles, California, had already shown in principle that it was possible to create cells that seek out and destroy HIV, but this is the first time they have shown this can be done in a living organism…. More at Engineered Cells Suppress HIV In Living Tissue
