Researchers at University of Nebraska Medical Center are taking a critical step toward eliminating the HIV virus.  Researchers from UNMC and the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University announced today they've successfully eliminated the HIV virus responsible for AIDS from living animals.  The research was published online in the journal Nature Communications.  It explains how researchers targeted the replication-competent HIV-1 DNA.

Founded in 1984 as a compassionate response to the AIDS crisis, Nebraska AIDS Project (NAP) leads the community in the fight to overcome HIV/AIDS and its stigma through education, supportive services, and advocacy.
