New approach for AIDS: Lock HIV in reservoir cells, to die through apoptosis

With the successful suppression of the AIDS virus (HIV) through medication, the focus turns toward its eradication. Researchers have developed a new compound that is key to the destruction of HIV. When the compound is introduced into infected cells, viral budding is suppressed thereby confining it within the host cells. The cell then dies naturally through apoptosis. This treatment is hoped to lead to the complete recovery from AIDS in the near future.
