Study: Enzyme seen to scrub HIV from cells

Scientists in Germany have discovered a way to remove the HIV virus from infected cells, the Associated Press reported.

The study, published in Science magazine, involved a newly engineered enzyme that attacks the DNA of the virus and cuts it from infected cells.

"A customized enzyme that effectively excises integrated HIV-1 from infected cells in vitro might one day help to eradicate (the) virus from AIDS patients," Alan Engelman, of Harvard University's Dana-Farber Cancer Institude, wrote in an article accompanying the study, AP reported.
