Global Markets Direct's, 'C-C Chemokine Receptor Type 5 (C-C CKR-5
or CHEMR13 or HIV-1 Fusion Coreceptor or CD195 or CCR5) - Pipeline Review, H1 2016', provides in depth analysis on C-C Chemokine Receptor Type 5 (C-C CKR-5
or CHEMR13 or HIV-1 Fusion Coreceptor or CD195 or CCR5) targeted pipeline therapeutics.
* AIDS cofactor identified: Five teams of researchers identify, virtually simultaneously, a single protein called CKR-5
that allows the AIDS virus to establish a foothold in the body.
While it seems reasonable that having mutations in both copies of the CC- CKR-5
gene offers considerable protection from infection with HIV, scientists caution that several HIV strains use molecules other than CC- CKR-5
to infect cells.
