Critical Breakthrough in HIV research

Scientists believe that they are getting closer in finding the medicine for AIDS. In a landmark achievement the scientists have discovered a protein which could defend HIV virus. CAML or Calcium Modulating Cyclopilin is the name of the protein which restrains the release of HIV particles. It was told that CAML is an inborn defense mechanism against the virus. Some researchers have observed for the first time a huge number of molecules uniting in a living cell to form a single particle of HIV. This will go along way in finding out possible treatment mechanisms against the disease. CAML works by hindering a very late step in the lifecycle of the virus which results in the retention of HIV particles on the surface membrane of the cell.
