Two longtime researchers at The Cleveland Clinic and Case Western Reserve University got $18.5 million from the Richard J. Fasenmyer Foundation for their continued research on HIV/AIDS.

Dr. Leonard Calabrese has been studying the relationship between HIV/AIDS and autoimmune diseases with Dr. Michael Lederman for more than 30 years. He says their research raises questions about why patients who respond to treatment can still develop autoimmune diseases.

“Why do we not turn off this inflammatory signal and are their strategies ranging from diet, to exercise, to stress reduction to high powered therapies like biologic agents that actually may be able to accomplish this task?" Calabrese says. 

Calabrese says researchers are making tremendous progress with the treatment of HIV and AIDS because it is a global health priority.
