Starve a virus, feed a cure?

A protein that protects some of our immune cells from the most common and virulent form of HIV works by starving the virus of the molecular building blocks that it needs to replicate. While researchers hope the work will one day lead to a way to make anti-HIV drugs more effective by increasing their potency against the virus, they’re also excited about its implications for our knowledge of other pathogens, such as herpes viruses.
