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.
