Research suggests way to eliminate HIV from the body
Scientists have developed a way to prevent HIV from immobilising cells that help fight and destroy infections.

The cells — called macrophages — are found in the immune system and are the body’s natural defence against invading viruses. HIV hides inside macrophages and reproduces. If researchers can find a way to stop that from happening it may pave the way for a cure.
