SCIENTISTS FINALLY FIND A FULL CURE TO HIV/AIDS AFTER A BRITISH MAN IS CURED OF THE DEADLY DISEASE...SEE FULL DETAILS
The research by Oxford and Cambridge universities, Imperial College London, University College London, and King’s College London, is testing a “kick and kill” technique to first expose, then destroy the virus.
First a vaccine helps the body find infected T-cells. This is then followed by a course of the drug Vorinostat that awakens the dormant T-cells, which then begin producing HIV proteins that act as a homing beacon to the immune system.
Mark Samuels, managing director of the National Institute for Health Research Office for Clinical Research Infrastructure, told the Sunday Times: “This is one of the first serious attempts at a full cure for HIV. We are exploring the real possibility of curing HIV. This is a huge challenge and it’s still early days but the progress has been remarkable.”
On her part, Imperial College London consultant physician, Professor Sarah Fidler said the treatment worked in the laboratory and there was “good evidence” it will work in patients.
The trial patient told the newspaper that recent blood tests showed no detectable HIV virus was present, although it was too early to confirm that the treatment had worked.
