Researchers identify new genetic risk factor for HIV infection
Two groups of people especially intrigue AIDS
researchers: those who resist HIV infection despite repeated exposure to the virus and those who progress very slowly to AIDS after infection. Understanding what makes these individuals different could lead to new vaccines and treatments, and a study published this week
in the early online edition of the journal AIDS brings scientists closer to that goal.
