  1. "Even the best antiviral treatment is not a cure"

    On 1 December 2017, the 30th World AIDS Day took place to raise awareness of one of the most destructive epidemics in human history. Despite major advances in HIV treatment in the last decades - which have greatly improved the life expectancy of infected individuals - the disease is far from being eradicated. Professor Marie Larsson from Linköping University in Sweden studies how HIV affects the cells of the immune system and renders individuals more vulnerable to infections by other viruses.
