New lab mice pave way for novel studies of human infection
A new type of laboratory mouse developed at UT Southwestern Medical Center can fight certain infections the same way humans do, making the rodents very useful for novel studies of human-pathogen interaction and developing disease therapies. View News Article (2006-10-23)

Wild gorillas carriers of a SIV virus close to the AIDS virus
In 2005, 40.3 million people in the world, including 25.8 million in Sub-Saharan Africa, were living with HIV. The question of the origin of HIV-1, responsible for the AIDS pandemic, has been stimulating the scientific community for many years. View News Article (2006-11-14)

A new step towards an AIDS vaccine
Progressive disease after HIV infection is inversely correlated with the presence of plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDCs), a subset of the dendritic cell family and the major producers of type 1 interferon in the body. View News Article (2005-10-14)

Molecular steps involved in the creation of gene-silencing MicroRNAs identified
First discovered only a few brief years ago, microRNAs are small, remarkably powerful molecules that appear to play a pivotal role in gene silencing, one of the body's main strategies for regulating its genome. A scant 22 nucleotides in length, miRNAs appear to work by binding to and somehow interfering with messenger RNA, itself responsible for translating genes into proteins. View News Article (2005-06-23)

Survival rates exceed national averages for UCSF heart, liver and lung transplant programs
One-year survival rates for patients receiving heart, liver and lung transplants at UCSF Medical Center exceed national averages at statistically significant levels, according to new data compiled by the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR). View News Article (2008-03-03)

Controlling neglected tropical diseases could help make poverty history
"The big three" infections AIDS, TB and malaria have caught the world's attention but other disabling and fatal infectious diseases in Africa are being ignored, say three eminent tropical disease researchers in the international health journal PLoS Medicine. View News Article (2005-10-11)

Molecular switch may turn off immune cells that target HIV
One of the primary mysteries of the AIDS epidemic - why the immune system is unable to control HIV infection - may have been solved by an international research collaborative. View News Article (2006-08-21)

Science commentary stresses need for collaboration at local level in HIV-prevention studies
Clinical trials of drugs intended to prevent HIV infection in high-risk populations must be developed and carried out in close collaboration with the local communities and national governments of the countries in which they are conducted, according to 18 international leaders in HIV prevention writing in the current (Sept. 30, 2005) issue of Science. View News Article (2005-10-03)

Interfering RNA silences genes in 'slippery' immune cells
A technical advance in laboratory techniques may provide biology researchers broader access to RNA interference, a process of blocking the activity of targeted genes. View News Article (2006-05-09)

Researchers discover gut tissue to be a major reservoir harboring HIV
UCLA researchers have found the human gut to be a major reservoir harboring the HIV virus - holding almost twice as much as a person's blood. View News Article (2006-08-28)
