Cure for HIV reportedly 3 years away

By Fox News

1459586718025FOX NEWS – A cure for HIV and AIDS reportedly could be just a few years away after scientists have been able to successfully snip away the virus from infected cells and prevent the disease from returning.

Scientists at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University are confident that within the next three years they will be able to start human trials, the UK Daily Telegraph reported.

American researchers have previously shown that it’s possible to edit genes to cut the virus from DNA cells entirely.

British experts believe that this treatment, which has only been tested in labs, would allow the body to effectively “cure itself from the inside,” the newspaper reported. Human immune cells that were tested in the labs have showed no alteration to any other part of the genetic code.

“The fact that for the first time we have been able to completely eliminate segments of the viral genome in the laboratory demonstrates that we should be able to eliminate it in the human body,” lead researcher Professor Kamel Khalili told The Telegraph.

He reiterated that based on the recent findings, clinical trials could start within the next three years.

  1. I am sure a cure is already available and has been for some time now but companies are seeking guarantee of a huge pay day before making it available to the public. That has been the attitude of these heath companies in the research field. Greed over shadows improving better quality living of humans that they claim to be the backbone of their research in finding cures.

    • The more diseases out there, the Better for them. They make them and we pay for Medicine to keep us alive. Otherwise HOW do you account for so many appearing now on a Global scale. They were NOT here before. These are legalized DRUG pushers Who have made the World dependent on them, and get us to thank them for saving us. Don't forget experimental Government GERM Warfare.
