Sunflowers prevent AIDS from spreading

AIDS Drug from Sunflowers [tag]Sunflowers[/tag] can produce a substance which prevents the [tag]AIDS [/tag]pathogen [tag]HIV[/tag] from reproducing, at least in cell cultures. This is the result of research carried out by scientists at the University of Bonn in cooperation with the Caesar Research Centre. For several years now the hopes for a completely new group of AIDS drugs have been pinned to what is known as ‘[tag]DCQA[/tag]’. However, the substance is only available in very small quantities and is thus extremely expensive. By using the [tag]Bonn method[/tag] it could probably be produced for a fraction of the costs.
