Study Shows Study Shows method is safe, something beneficial, researchers reportA study of gene therapy for the treatment of HIV has shown that and and something useful – a ‘great step forward’in efforts to fight the virus – researchers said in a study recently published in the journal Nature Medicine, AFP / Google.com reports. According to the researchers, the study – confirmed that this gene therapy in HIV research way is a valid approach – Which led by Ronald Mitsuyasu of the University of California – Los Angeles. The study included 74 HIV-positive people, half of them received blood stem cells , which contain a molecule called OZ1, which are designed to block HIV from replicating by two important proteins is. The other half a placebo. A placebo. The study aimed to to establish whether the stem cells would survive the body ‘s immune system , and if this replication of HIV. Replication of HIV. The researchers found Higher after 48 weeks there was no statistically significant difference between the two groups. But after 100 weeks had the group that RNA enzyme RNA enzyme gene. Higher CD4+ T cells and HIV viral load low The study also revealed that the new blood stem cells over time exhausted – even though DNA tests show that the modified cells were in 94 percent of the gene group after four weeks dropped this to 12 percent at week 48 and 7 percent in week 100th According to the researchers, the results the study the treatment was ‘safe’and modest effective. Mitsuyasu said that instead of the technology up to a phase III study, the team has technology technology and develops new tests on a smaller group of participants. Study study ‘gives some hope ‘on gene therapy for the treatment of HIV and other diseases, such as cancer, added: ‘It is a positive result for the field , and should move the field forward ‘(AFP / Google.
A growing body of gender-specific study showed trends among people, mainly white middle-class men to decelerate seek help when they are ill, writes Jun. K. Robinson, by Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago, and the editor of Archives of Dermatology, and gentlemen to an accompanying editorial. By delaying seeking care, women needing later from melanoma when it being not treatable.
