Experts at the university also hope that the breakthrough could be applied to cancer by finding a way of using the body’s own immune cells to attack invading cancer cells and tumours.

The team’s genetically-engineered killer T-cells are able to identify and destroy HIV even when the virus mutates in a bid to avoid detection.

It is thought that the breakthrough could lead to the development of more effective treatments for HIV and could even slow down – or prevent – the onset of Aids.
