Scientists create AIDS weapon
BOSTON - Scientists have created
the. first virus-killing viruses, cleverly
crafted microscopic missiles that zero
in on AIDS-infected cells and destroy
The idea is to fight infection with
infection. The newly created viruses
target only cells that have already been
captured by HIV
The approach works well in the test
tube but has not been tried yet in people
or even in animals. Even though no one
knows whether it will eventually help
control AIDS, experts say the idea is
noteworthy for its novelty alone.
'It's absolutely amazing that you can
make a virus that will specifically target
HIV-infected cells," said Dr. Ronald
Desrosiers of the New England
Regional Primate Center, who plans to
begin testing one of the viruses soon on
One version of the virus, created by
Dr. John Rose and his research team at
Yale Medical School, is a genetically
altered form of vesicular stomatitis
virus, or VSV, a bug that ordinarily
infects livestock. Another is based on
the rabies virus and was created by a
team led by Dr. Karl-Klaus
Conzelmann of the Federal Research
Center for Virus Diseases of Animals in
"It's a completely new approach to
limiting viral infection," Rose said.
"This is the first virus that's an anti-
Reports on both experiments are
being published in Friday's issue of the
journal Cell. An accompanying com-
mentary by Dr. Garry Nolan of
Stanford University called the work
"highly significant" and "a leap for-
If it works as its developers hope, the
technique will stop the AIDS virus cold
by employing a sort of mirror image of
HIV's own sly tricks for warming its
way into cells.
Each individual bit of HIV is a ball of
genetic material wrapped in a protein
known as gp120. This substance has a
powerful chemical attraction to two
other proteins called CD4 and fusin.

Hashimoto to foster
goo dwi in China
BEIJING -Japanese Prime Minister
Ryutaro Hashimoto arrived in China
yesterday for a four-day tour to try to
defuse angry memories of past wars,
dispel fears of future conflicts and build
the safe common ground of trade.
Hashimoto and Chinese Prime
Minister Li Peng met for more than two
hours at the Great Hall of the People,
where the two leaders signed several
accords including $1.68 billion in loans
from Japan to China.
Hashimoto's visit is timed to mark
the 25th anniversary of Sino-Japanese
ties. But the trip also comes at a time
of Chinese complaints about Japan's
expanding security alliance with the
United States, and of renewed con-
demnations here of Japanese war
At the top of Hashimoto's agenda:
to reassure China that even though
Japan has agreed to provide more sup-
port for U.S. forces keeping peace in
the region, it is not taking sides in ten-
sions between China and Taiwan, a
Japanese foreign ministry spokesper-
son said. Li has termed "utterly unac-
ceptable" new guidelines for the U.8.
