FSU research produces images of AIDS virus that may shape vaccine
As the world marks the 25th year since the first diagnosed case of AIDS, groundbreaking research by scientists at Florida State University has produced remarkable three-dimensional images of the virus and the protein spikes on its surface that allow it to bind and fuse with human immune cells. View News Article (2006-05-30)


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)


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)


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)


Colon cancer screenings may not pay off and could pose harm to some
Even though current guidelines advocate colorectal cancer screenings for those with severe illnesses, they may bring little benefit and may actually pose harm, according to a recent study by Yale School of Medicine researchers published in the Archives of Internal Medicine. View News Article (2007-12-19)


Role of protein in immune response may aid HIV research
A family of proteins that serve as the body's first line of defense against bacterial infections may provide a lifeline for individuals with compromised immune systems, according to researchers at the Indiana University School of Medicine - Northwest. View News Article (2006-07-31)


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)


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)


Psychosocial issues affect HIV/AIDS treatment outcomes: UNC researcher
Psychosocial influences such as stress, depression and trauma have been neglected in biomedical and treatment studies involving people infected with HIV, yet they are now known to have significant health impacts on such individuals and the spread of AIDS, according to a University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill scientist. View News Article (2008-06-19)
