Antibiotic allowed the immune system to suppress HIV cells

Experts have learned how to help the immune system detect cells with HIV. To do this, they are going to use special antibiotics that have an effect on the disease.

According to ToDay News Ufa, experts already know the special mechanism of HIV’s action and how the disease can deceive the immune system, while remaining completely unnoticed. In order to detect abnormalities at the cellular level, the immune system must use the proteins of the major histocompatibility complex. Thanks to these particles, proteins that detect various viruses are fixed, however, HIV contains the Nef protein, which blocks the synthesis of detecting violations. This happens because infected molecules do not appear on the surface of the cell membrane. As a result, the immune system does not see HIV.

However, specialists at the University of Michigan were able to find a drug that disables the defense mechanism of the disease. These are antibiotics from the macrolide group. They are toxic and can be harmful, but one of them, concanamycin A, is not so dangerous. You can find the dosage that shows immunity to HIV without causing negative effects.

We previously reported that the unusual way of cooking tomatoes increases their beneficial properties.
