Suggestions for the News: “Cell Success Gives Hope on AIDS”

The journalist covers the story briefly and makes a clean interface. I have two suggestions to bring a more interactive and insight story to readers.

  1. Links to the keywords

To give the information of essential background (the treatment procedure of British man, ART and previous cured cases), I may try to add links to the words, such as “‘edit’ the DNA of baby twins born HIV-resistant” (link: https://www.theguardian.com/science/2018/nov/26/worlds-first-gene-edited-babies-created-in-china-claims-scientist), “antiretroviral drugs” (link: https://www.hiv.gov/hiv-basics/staying-in-hiv-care/hiv-treatment/hiv-treatment-overview), and “Berlin patient” (link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berlin_Patient).

 

  1. Insert images for breaking up

Only using one image is not enough. As the news can be separated into three parts: 1) the case of the British Patient; 2) Arguments from other researchers; 3) the influence to future research, I would add two images to make the news broken-up properly.

 

a. Between paragraph 4-5, the photo shows the co-leader of the treatment in this HIV case.

b. Between paragraph 9-10, the image shows the complexity of stem cell transplant process.
