AIDS researchers around the world are watching the “slow progressors” — people who have HIV infection but don’t develop full-blown AIDS.


They only account for one per cent of HIV-infected individuals, but they may provide a key to new treatments.

The Canadian arm was led by Dr. Cécile Tremblay, a researcher with the Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal Research Centre.


He assembled research on slow progressors from all over Canada.
