*Scientists confirm virus thrives in another less-explored type of white blood cell
*Discovery explains why treatment has failed to wipe out chronic disease
Scientists have confirmed Human Immuno-deficiency Virus (HIV) can survive in another less-explored type of white blood cell.
Until now, treatment and cure research has focused on blocking the virus from T-cells, a type of white blood cell that is key to the immune system.
However, new research by the University of North Carolina (UNC), United States (U.S.), reveals the virus can also persist exclusively in macrophages, large white blood cells found in the liver, lung, bone marrow and brain.
