Fight HIV. Israeli researchers have developed a new technology. – IsraelValley

Israeli researchers have developed a new technology that makes it possible to create white blood cells capable of fighting HIV, the virus responsible for AIDS.

Scientists hope that this method, which uses the CRISPR genome editing system, can lead to a unique effective treatment for HIV and other diseases.

“We have developed an innovative treatment that could defeat the virus with a single injection, with the potential to significantly improve the patient’s condition,” said Dr Adi Barzel of Tel Aviv University, who led the study with doctoral student Alessio Nehmad.

HIV attacks the white blood cells in the body, which weakens the immune system.

There is no cure for this virus, although it is now more of a chronic disease than a death sentence as it once was – if appropriate treatments are available. available.
