Making the Invisible Visible – Mechanism Discovered that Enables Innate Immune System to Detect Viruses Like HIV early

Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut participating in an international research network have discovered a two-step mechanism of the innate immune system that also makes it possible to specifically recognise HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) and trigger an early immune response. This knowledge could be used in the development of vaccines that could strengthen this mechanism. The body could thus produce its own defence against HIV effectively and early. Molecular Cell reports on the results in its online edition from xx.xx.2022.
