Theory of How HIV Attacks is Wrong: Study

...o quickly, the researchers found. Using a simple mathematical model, researchers in the United States and Britain showed the "runaway" model would deplete the body's healthy T cells in a matter of months, instead of the years it actually takes. The results show that a "slow process must be active" in the depl...
