New Breakthrough May Lead to HIV Relapse Cure
« on: October 11, 2015, 07:23:03 pm »
Hello everyone
I dont now why but it feel its sooon we will hear Hiv cure is REAL

Sydney: Scientists are now better able to predict how quickly the HIV virus will return after individuals stop treatment, thanks to the discovery of new immune system biomarkers by researchers at the University of New South Wales (UNSW), Australia, and the University of Oxford.

The development opens up new avenues for understanding why the HIV virus persists in some patients, and remains dormant and undetectable in others.

While existing anti-retroviral therapy (ART) stops the HIV virus from replicating, it does not completely remove the virus. Destroying the hidden reservoirs of the virus remains one of the holy grails of HIV research.

Led by Oxford researcher professor John Frater, the international research team analysed data from a randomised study of patients with primary HIV infection.

They compared the T-cells of 154 patients in Europe, Brazil and Australia who had their ART treatment interrupted after 12 or 48 weeks.

This is a great breakthrough and something more to add to the arsenal of tools against HIV and hopfully towards a cure..

But research takes time and money so I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for this discovery to give us a cure any time soon.
"Hang on to your hopes my friend..
thats an easy thing to say,
but if your hope should pass away,
simply pretend that you could build them again"...
