(Pierce Pioneer) – In the world growing industry of HIV treatment, research now indicates that a new strategy could starve the virus by stopping its supply of sugar and nutrient channels.

“The discovery opens new avenues for further research to solve today’s persisting problems in treating HIV infection: avoiding virus resistance to medicines, decreasing the inflammation that leads to premature aging and maybe even one day being able to cure HIV infection,” explains Dr. Richard D’Aquila from the Northwestern University HIV Translational Research Center.

Basically, the research has identified the “switch” in the body which produces more sugar and nutrients for that particular HIV pipeline; and, furthermore, the study has indicated that it is possible to shut off this switch. Generally, the HIV virus invades the cell and gets to right to work with replication.

HIV growth depends on the invasion of a very specific type of immune cell—the CD4-T-Cell).
