HIV

The prototype showed biases at low virus concentrations and the researchers raised concerns over use of whole blood versus plasma HIV RNA as a biomarker. 

The researchers combined epitope tagging and affinity-capture mass spec to investigate interactors of two HIV proteins as they exist in functional viruses.

Researchers in San Diego collaborated with the American Red Cross to enable molecular testing, reducing incidence in the zip codes where screening was offered.

Escape From Editing

Researchers report this week that HIV-1 can become resistant to CRISPR/Cas9 editing.

Two recent studies confirm that CRISPR/Cas9 can edit and inhibit latent HIV provirus, but one of them hints that the virus can develop resistance to excision.

Researchers used viral repertoire sequencing to characterize an early-stage HIV-neutralizing antibody, an important step toward developing a vaccine.

The firm's dual assay for host antigen to HIV as well as viral RNA was described in a proof-of-principle study earlier this year. 

The company'sExatype software is a web-based solution for locating HIV drug resistance mutations using raw NGS data and other functional information.

Setup of the TTC.

The firm has improved design of the system for low-resource settings and validated it on clinical chlamydia samples and extracted HIV, Ebola, and dengue samples.

The companies will work to develop an affordable, portable, and easy-to-use HIV quantitative viral load test using Cue's Lab-In-A-Box MDx platform.
