Cholesterol key to 'sneaky' HIV weakness
from Laboratory News
Removing cholesterol from the membrane surrounding the HIV virus could point to a new method of preventing the virus from damaging the immune system. Researchers from Imperial College London and Johns Hopkins University found that removing cholesterol from the cell membrane stopped HIV from triggering the innate immune response, which some researchers believe overreacts and weakens the adaptive immune response.
