UCSF loses contract as Trump administration restricts fetal tissue research

The Trump administration on Wednesday announced major new restrictions in funding of research involving human fetal tissue — a product that many scientists say is irreplaceable in studying certain diseases — in a move that immediately ended a decades-long partnership with UCSF involving HIV research.

Fetal Tissue Research Ban Threatens Progress Toward Cure for HIV, Other Life-threatening Diseases

The Department of Health and Human Services’ announcement Wednesday that it will halt funding for research involving the use of human fetal tissue conducted within the National Institutes of Health, and review funding for research at extramural research universities with potential new restrictions, will significantly imperil our most promising strategies to develop a cure for HIV and other life-threatening diseases, while soundly undermining the administration’s stated commitment to ending the HIV epidemic.

Could gold be the key to making gene therapy for HIV, blood disorders more accessible?

Could gold be the key to making gene therapy for HIV, blood disorders more accessible?  Scientists at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center took a step toward making gene therapy more practical by simplifying the way gene-editing instructions are delivered to cells. Using a gold nanoparticle instead of an inactivated virus, they safely delivered gene-editing tools in lab models of HIV and inherited blood disorders, as reported May 27 in Nature Materials.

Attacking persistent HIV reservoirs via a ‘long noncoding’ RNA

As effective as antiretroviral drugs have been in the treatment of HIV, the virus can still hide out in the body in reservoirs that have proven exceedingly difficult to eradicate. Now researchers at Cornell University have found a new way to attack these HIV reservoirs, and it involves “long noncoding” RNAs (lncRNAs), which don’t produce proteins themselves but instead dial protein-producing genes up or down.

Community Consensus Statement on Access to HIV Treatment and its Use for Prevention

Together, we can make it happen

We can end HIV soon if people have equal access to HIV drugs as treatment and as PrEP, and have free choice over whether to take them.

Launched today, the Community Consensus Statement is a basic set of principles aimed at making sure that happens.

The Community Consensus Statement is a joint initiative of AVAC, EATG, MSMGF, GNP+, HIV i-Base, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, ITPC and NAM/aidsmap
