Researchers from the Vaccine and Gene Therapy Institute in Port St. Lucie, Fla. had presented a study at the annual Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, which says that a gene therapy may help in boosting the number of immune cells in HIV patients.
It is being said that the findings are though not sufficient enough to be called a complete treatment discoverer. The same uncover the process that may reconstitute the patients’ immune system.
As per the report, the study conducted by the team was focused at creating CD4-positive T cells. However, it is not the only one to produce information on gene therapy. But, this time it has found that the therapy is only helpful in increasing the cells with a long-lasting effect.
In the meanwhile, it has been found that the cells are resistant to infection, but are targets of HIV. Thus, increase in them is a must so that patients realize restoration of their immune systems upping the level, thereby starting the antiretroviral therapy.
Besides, zinc finger nucleases, the restriction enzymes inactivating the gene for CD4 cells’ CCR5 receptor, are also being used to mimic a result produced by a stem cell transplant previously. It had made the cells resist to the virus.
