‘It’s sobering’: A once-exciting HIV cure strategy fails its test in people

When Science published a monkey study nearly 2 years ago that showed an anti-inflammatory antibody effectively cured monkeys intentionally infected with the simian form of the AIDS virus, the dramatic results turned many heads. But some skeptical researchers thought the data looked too good to be true and predicted the intervention wouldn’t work on HIV in humans. They were right.

Fauci: HIV remission free of antiretroviral therapy is a feasible goal

Long-lasting control of HIV infection without antiretroviral therapy (ART) is a feasible goal that deserves vigorous pursuit, Anthony S. Fauci, M.D., will assert during a lecture on Wednesday, July 25 at the 22nd International AIDS Conference (AIDS 2018) in Amsterdam.

What’s the fuss about a functional cure?

A recent study from researchers in Hong Kong has got the world’s media talking about a functional cure for HIV. A quick search for the terms ‘HIV, functional cure, Hong Kong’ yields a long list of articles and videos from around the world. Twitter has also been going crazy. Read on to find out what the researchers did, what they found, and more importantly, what this means for people living with HIV.

CRISPR Eradicates Latent HIV-1, Offering Hope of "Functional Cures"

Scientists in Japan have used CRISPR-Cas9 technology to stop human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) replication in latently infected T cells that can’t be controlled using existing drug treatments. The gene-editing approach effectively disrupts two regulatory HIV-1 genes, tat and rev, which are essential for viral replication.

Discovery of how HIV hedges its bets opens the door to new therapies

HIV covers its bases in a volatile environment by generating both active and dormant infections. But if the virus is randomly switching between these two fates, how does it ever commit to remaining in one state? Weinberger's laboratory has now answered this longstanding question. Researchers may now be able to continually force HIV back into latency by exploiting the virus's splicing circuit and achieve the "lock and block" therapy.

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
