The HIV viruses infect cells by endocytosis and takes over parts of the cells reaction pathways in order to reproduce itself and spread the infection. One such pathway is the mammalian inflammatory signaling, which invoke NF-κB as the principal transcription factor. A treatment against HIV could be based on blocking the NF-κB pathway by a suitably designed drug. The aim of the current project is to investigate the feasibility of this idea by using mathematical modelling of the NF-κB pathway.
