Strategic Alliance Partnership | <b>UNC Institute for Global Health & Infectious Diseases</b>

If research continues focusing on macrophages and their role in the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), it could mean new opportunities to treat patients and eventually help find a cure.

If research continues focusing on macrophages and their role in the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), it could mean new opportunities to treat patients and eventually help find a cure.

Researchers at the University of North Carolina (UNC) have found positive results in animal models that could help move this effort along considerably — pending further work in the field. Jenna Bone Honeycutt, PhD, spoke with MD Magazine and said that this work will eventually extend to looking at antiretroviral therapy (ART) and what that can mean for patient care in the future.
