    Finally, after decades of work, to find an achilles heal of this scurge.
    I bet this will generate a lot of targeted research now.

    I posted a similar thread: Thread 97061

    Although it's not the same approach, but hey, the more people working in the right direction, the better...

    Let's hope HIV's legendary genetic diversity doesn't let it avoid this somehow.

    Time will tell, and it should not be decades this go-round.
    I wonder if as a result of this work, similar deep effects can be found for other nasty viruses, like ebola or the universal herpes. On the herpes front, it was just demonstrated a technique that drives somehow the herpes virus out of the neuron cells where they hide out only to die from the immune system attacks. When they are hidden in neurons, they avoid attack by the powerful immune system. I'll see if I can scrounge up the citation.

    That didn't take long. New scientist article I read recently, although there are caveats to the treatment:
