Vyralize: Scientists have announced that they have functionally cured a child infected with HIV after being treated with a string of antiretroviral drugs beginning in the first days of the infant’s life. (Culture)

I bet you my house and car you wont hear about this in news and they will still say there's no cure. I bet you that group who is founded by investors is gonna be bought by a medicine company and you wont hear of this ever again.

Well there still isn't a cure considering the vast majority of sufferers didn't contract HIV at birth and this isn't really a treatment that can be reliably extended to adults, so don't get your hopes up too much.

Pharmaceautical Companies will be the end of us... I always thought there was a bit TOO much opposition to gene therapy and stem cell research.

Now to hope that it lasts, is repeatable, and will help further understanding of how to make a more general treatment.

it's a kid many have been born from people with hiv and haven't gotten it themselves.

Did you even read the story?
SilentNegotiator  +   514d ago
Yes, they tested a drug on an infant without testing to see that it was HIV-positive.

you're one of those guys who didn't watch Reading Rainbow as a child, right? Take a look, it's in a book, a Reading Rainbow.

Sad thing is we won't see this take effect because the government would rather make money on slowly keeping someone alive with meds than curing them.

"The baby remained on the prescribed antiretroviral treatment regimen until 18 months of age (January 2012), when treatment was discontinued for reasons that are unclear."

Now that's a mystery. There's no details on why treatment was discontinued. Something must have happened that wasn't recorded.

This is a good start but it probably wont last long. Like the chinese discovered a cure for cancer that actually works but its not very well known and governments rather not it be known because they will lose money.

cure for cancer? link please...
