HIV destroys itself – Researchers at Drexel Medical | Wyly Wade
Pinning down an effective way to combat the spread of the human immuno-deficiency virus, the viral precursor to AIDS, has long been challenge task for scientists and physicians, because the virus is an elusive one that mutates frequently and, as a result, quickly becomes immune to medication. A team of Drexel University researchers is trying to get one step ahead of the virus with a microbicide they've created that can trick HIV into "popping" itself into oblivion.
