  • HIV spreads like internet malware and should be treated earlier

    A new model for HIV progression finds that it spreads in a similar way to some computer worms and predicts that early treatment is key to staving off AIDS.HIV specialists and network security experts at UCL noticed that the spread of HIV through the body using two methods - via the bloodstream and d more

  • Stanford-led study finds limited mutations involved in transmission of drug-resistant HIV

    In the largest study of its kind to date, researchers at Stanford University School of Medicine and their colleagues have found that worldwide only a limited number of mutations are responsible for most cases of transmission of drug-resistant HIV. HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, can mutate in the p more

  • Trapping and watching motile cells

    Optical imaging of highly motile cells or cells in suspension, such as bacterial systems, yeast cells, and immune cells, is a challenging task, in many cases it is just not possible. The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), for example, can spread very efficiently from an infected T cell to an uninfe more

  • Real-time and Dynamic Monitoring of Virus-mediated Cytopathogenicity

    To understand overall infectivity, virus progression and disease onset it is important to perform a detailed examination of cytopathic effects. Depending on the type of viruses and cells, different cytopathic effects might be observed dependent on the timepoint of infection (e.g., during the growth or stationary phase) and the amount of virus used. One of the most common methods for measuring lysogenic/lytic activity of viruses is the plaque test [1]. In this assay culture plates with confluent cells that are sensitive towards the specific virus type/strain are used. Lytic activity of a virus is detected by macroscopic analysis of plaques in a confluent cell layer after staining (e.g., with crystal violet). This technique is an end-point assay and it is well-suited to determine viral titers; however, it provides no information about the onset of cytopathic effects and kinetics of the viral replication. Moreover, infection with a number of viruses (e.g., attenuated mutants) leads to the formation of small and more
