Scientists on brink of HIV cure

Researchers believe that there will be a breakthrough in finding a cure for HIV “within months”.

Danish scientists are expecting results that will show that “finding a mass-distributable and affordable cure to HIV is possible”.

They are conducting clinical trials to test a “novel strategy” in which the HIV virus is stripped from human DNA and destroyed permanently by the immune system.

The move would represent a dramatic step forward in the attempt to find a cure for the virus, which causes Aids.

The scientists are currently conducting human trials on their treatment, in the hope of proving that it is effective. It has already been found to work in laboratory tests.

The technique involves releasing the HIV virus from “reservoirs” it forms in DNA cells, bringing it to the surface of the cells. Once it comes to the surface, the body’s natural immune system can kill the virus through being boosted by a “vaccine”.

In vitro studies — those that use human cells in a laboratory — of the new technique proved so successful that in January, the Danish Research Council awarded the team 12 million Danish kroner (£1.5 million) to pursue their findings in clinical trials with human subjects.

Not surprising.

Eventually, every disease will be me "curable", giving way to new diseases.

Good news, though i had began to look at hiv in a positive light, more people using condoms, therefore less unwanted babies. Overall hiv has been a blessing for my country (south Africa ), people were forced to be more open about sex, even children as young as ten are taught at school safe sex, and having one sexual partner. Hopefully people don't think they can go back to being reckless.

You misunderstood, I said I personally saw the scourge of aids in my country in positive light, because most people practice safe se.x and are more educated about se.x due to massive education campaigns, therefore less unwanted babies and reckless behavior.

@zedtee, you're crediting everyone on this forum with sincerity, but stupidity and mischief abounds. You must learn to ignore most responses. wink

A great American philosopher once said: "I believe that human ingenuity would be capable of providing a cure for every disease mankind could possibly know. I also believe that human greed would prevent the majority of those cures from ever seeing the light of day. It's distressing to think that humanity's pocketbook could ever outweigh humanity's heart."

I can understand what you meant now.

Still, there are less deadly ways to learn to have less children. I think the racist SA government helped encourage the spread of AIDS because they thought it would curb the black population. Even to this day, the majority of the people suffering from it are black.

The human race was around for thousands of years before AIDS, and we still managed to get along just fine. If there was anything that encouraged reckless behavior it was probably the destruction of family values when AIDS killed so many parents.

I hope all this is true. However, keep in mind that the HIV can lay dormant and then "re-activate". Many studies conducted have claimed many were eradicated of the virus only to have it re-develop later. Let's hope for the best..

Great job,guys!

That is what I called working hard to save humanity. I think we Africans should emulate this kind of way to make life better for all. We should put all our efforts in solving problems than harming ourselves and others.

It is time we start to carry out a soul-search plan to do what are required of any human being in carry forward our world for the good of all. Not just pointing accusing fingers while there are a lot of works to be done somewhere somehow about our existence.

I laud this program with all enthusiasm. Go Danish, you are the pride of Europe at the moment for conceiving such idea!

Didn't you read where it states they will be stripped off the human DNA and be destroyed? Whether they are active or dormant they will be stripped from human DNA as long as they can be identify as HIV.

grin I see Nigerian population escalating to over one billion few months after the cure is discovered.

95% of Nigerians who have sex with condom do so for fear of contacting HIV.

Correct me if am wrong!

Was this not exactly what Dr Abalaka did using human blood in developing his crude vaccine?

Why then does it seem so wonderful now cos its being done by Danes using the same human blood?

Sir, you didn't complete your propaganda.

So a quick question for you.

1. Did these white racists inject the blacks with this virus?

2. Were blacks deprived of sex education in their segregated schools?

3.Did the white racists make it a crime for blacks to use condom?

4. How many infected white racist have you heard of raping scores of black women for the purpose of infecting them?

5. Is condom $100 per pack in SA?

Just asking.

They are at a critical stage of the clinical trials and they seem to be getting significant results in humans.

Let's wait and see the eventual outcome.

Hmmm! teaching kids immorality and u call that blessing. i guess u need a dictionary.

So u would gladly tell ur ten year old son/daughter that it is okay to have sex (@ so young an age and outside of wedlock), only that s/he has to do it with a con.d.om and stick to one partner.
