Flash-heating breast milk kills HIV

 "" Testing of hot nanoprobes shows they slow the growth of breast tumors.
"" ""

UC researchers from Davis and Berkeley have found that the simple method of heating a glass jar of HIV-infected breast milk in a pan of water over a flame or single burner successfully inactivated the virus. The study, published in the Journal of the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes and co-authored by UC Davis pediatrician Caroline Chantry provides hope that mothers with HIV in resource-poor countries will soon be able to feed babies more safely. Chantry will lead the next stage of field trials using this technique in the homes of women in Africa.
