    "We expected that we would see no activity in the dormant cells," Associate Professor Tscharke said.

    "The surprise came when we found the virus was doing something in many cells. Not all of these cells have the same level of virus activity either. For some it's very low and in others more of the virus genes are turned on. The host cells were responding most strongly when there was lots of virus activity.

    "When we thought there was nothing going on we had no targets to look at. Now we know there is an interaction we can look for ways to help the good guys to win."

    Interesting, I thought some people had better immune function than others. I guess there is different activity levels.
