Researchers Join Forces To Find A Cure

I thought this was interesting:

A group of international scientists join their forces to promote medical research, clinical trials and education on HIV reservoirs & eradication strategies.

Toulon, France, December 06, 2010 -- Current therapy for HIV infection requires life-long administration of drugs. Despite this, HIV persists in “viral reservoirs” and each time therapy is stopped, the infection rekindles.

Although ' HIV eradication' has been a dirty word for a decade, a new hope is ahead. Several lectures at the International AIDS Conference in Vienna in July 2010 discussed the possibility to reach 'drug-free remission' and several efforts are now going in this way.

New strategies need to be tested either to try to 'purge' the HIV reservoir or to obtain a 'sabotage' of persistent HIV infection.

Basic science researchers and clinical science doctors involved in the fight against HIV and AIDS for several years have founded this group and will collaborate for a world free of AIDS in the next decade.

IMHO, this is exactly the type of approach that needs to be taken. A concerted effort of cooperation, collaberation, and coordination. There are so many promising research efforts in progress, hopefully, they can pool their collective IP and funding to work across the finish line.

Wishing them luck...

We already have a song for the cure:
