While it's true most if not all of these discoveries lead to nothing, it is good that they are "trying". You never know when they might stumble across something. I enjoy seeing these articles, no matter how far-fetched or trivail they may be. I hate to think of a day where we stop seeing these because everyone has stopped "trying"

Each one individually may not be the answer but maybe the sum total of them all or the combination of any number of them could lead to a method of stopping the virus in its tracks.

The researchers obtained immune cells called CD4 T cells—the prime targets of HIV—from all the volunteers and subjected these cells to lab tests. The tests showed that elite controllers had CD4 T cells that made 10 to 100 times more p21 than did people in the other three groups. "It's not a subtle difference. It's quite striking," Lichterfeld says.

When the researchers put these cells in lab dishes and subjected them to an HIV assault, the cells loaded with p21 held off the virus.

"These data suggest that this protein can inhibit HIV," Lichterfeld says. But he notes that the mechanism by which p21 does this and even how these cells make extra amounts of the protein are not yet fully understood. There may be genetic variations involved, he says.

"It might offer an alternative way to control HIV if we can find a way to manipulate this p21 protein in patients," he says. But using p21 as a tool probably won't be as simple as giving the protein to people.

"The fact that it occurs in nature is encouraging—that you have a natural model," says Joel Gallant, an infectious disease physician who specializes in HIV at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. Although many questions need to be answered before finding a way to use p21 clinically, he says, "this could be critical someday in getting better control of HIV.

I think some of you are in the dark as you can see its already happening like its there a human model working nature at its best trying to show us the way

So great to hear from guys who really believe that a cure for HIV is not far away.

I hope for one every day, but then think I might be delusional too...

For the possibility of a cure, I hope for the best, but expect the worst.

By the way...
how many people have the conspiracy theory belief that the pharma's have no incentive to invest in finding a cure - or that one has been discovered but not publicized as it would not be as profitable for them?
pleeeeeease .... nooooooo

Ok that is a good question. My mom and I go around about this. I hope that ethics prevail and that if someone found a cure for anything they would share no matter how much coin at stake.
I also tell her that insurance companies push for it. They are the ones that will do the investigating. Really they want the cure as much as we do. Heck I told my mom one of my meds is like 13 grand a year.
