    Scientist Delete HIV Virus From Human Cells Permenantly

    According to a paper published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences released on July 21st.Scientists at the Temple University School of Medicine in the USA claim that they have successfully managed to remove the HIV virus from cultured human cells for the first time.

    The research was carried out on the most common strain of HIV, HIV-1, and to remove it from human cells a DNA-cutting enzyme known as nuclease was used with a targeting strand of guide RNA (gRNA). In combination those two things were able to track down the virus genome and remove it from the human cells. The medical school is hoping that they will be able to start clinical trials in the near future and are really optimistic about the prospects of using such a discovery to eliminate and cure AIDS.
