Researchers have found a way to make cells resistant to HIV, a new report reveals.

In a major breakthrough, scientists have tethered HIV-fighting antibodies to immune cells, creating a cell population resistant to the virus.

These resistant cells can quickly replace diseased cells, making it more effective than other therapies - and potentially curing the deadly disease.

The researchers plan to collaborate with investigators at City of Hope's Center for Gene Therapy, in California, to evaluate this new therapy in efficacy and safety tests, as required by federal regulations, prior to testing in patients.

I guess this is good news? Not that it will ever affect me but sharing anyway!

well because HIV affects the immune system, then they would have a cure for the common cold as well

Hmm... Not sure it would be a cure for that... But I'd imagine it would lead to something like that? I don't know enough about these things however so cannot say for certain!
