Cure for AIDS? Possible AIDS Vaccine in the Works

[social_buttons]

Researchers in California believe they have hit the jackpot in modern medical breakthroughs. The cure for AIDS.

The researchers have published a study in the journal Science, demonstrating two powerful new antibodies which could hold the key to achieving a viable AIDS vaccine. It has been well known for several years that a very small percentage of people are immune to the HIV virus, but it was never discovered quite how. Now, researchers were able to isolate the antibodies that neutralize a high percentage of the virus’s different forms currently in circulation worldwide.

Now that these antibodies have been discovered, it is only a matter of finding out if people at large can produce these antibodies themselves after exposure to the vaccine. The antibodies, described as “broadly neutralizing,” have isolated a new target on the HIV virus that has not been utilized by other vaccine attempts. Just four other broadly neutralizing antibodies have been found to date, and they functioned by binding to places on the virus that have proven difficult to exploit.

These new antibodies target a region of the virus which is used to infect our cells. These regions have become highly variable to ward off attacks from our bodies immune system, but the excitement around this new antibody is that it appears to target regions of this protein that remain the same in almost all strains of HIV. This breadth of neutralization is important because HIV has evolved into many different subtypes during the course of it’s existence.

The antibodies were found using a new screening process using the blood from of more than 1,800 HIV-infected volunteers from seven Sub-Saharan countries, Thailand, Australia, Britain and the United States. Researchers are hopeful that this new screening technique will help them discover even more broadly neutralizing antibodies in the future.

    I have been suffering from HIV/AIDS since 6years now, and i have a kid for my husband, and now we cannot continue to have any other child again because of my disease. I have gone to several places to seek for help yet nobody could help, until i met a comment on the daily news paper that was commented by a lady named Britney on how this powerful herbal doctor helped her get cured of her disease HIV-AIDS. Firstly i thought seeking help from an African doctor was a wrong idea, but i said to myself, will i continue to live with this disease all my life when i have heard that somebody like me was healed and saved from the same HIV/AIDS, I said it’s not my portion to remain in this my condition. so i contacted him through his Email address at (dradanikesolutionhome@outlook.com), so after i have mailed him, he responded to me after some hours after and he said to me that i should not be afraid, that he is a truthful and powerful doctor which i firstly claimed him to be because of what i read about him before i contacted him. So he promised me that i will be healed but there are some items needed to prepare the herbal medicine and obeyed all that he said because am the one in need of help not him. I did all by accepting his Words, Some weeks of taking his herbal medicine i notice some changes in my body system and i went for check up the day he asked me to go for check up to confirm if the sickness was still there or not, to my greatest surprise i could not find any sickness on my body. Firstly i was shocked, i mean it was like a joke to me and later i arise to be the happiest woman on earth after i have concluded my final test on the hospital by my doctor that i am now HIV- Negative. My papers for check are with me and now i am so happy and glad for his miraculous work over my life. With these i must tell everyone who might seek for any help, either for HIV cure or much more, so contact him now on his private Email: dradanikesolutionhome@outlook.com He has done mine, he can also do yours.I will never forget the the happiness you brought back into my life.

    Do you know that there is a great Herbal doctor who can cure any deadly disease. Like Cancer, Hiv, syphilis, madness, low spam count e.t.c. Well my main reason why i am writing this right now is to inform the whole world about the great deeds, Dr. Ariba did for me. I was diagnosed of this deadly disease in the year 2000 ever since then i was taking my medications, until i met the great spell caster, though i never believed in spell. I saw many testimonies on how a great spell caster cured their deadly diseases. I contacted him through his phone number. I called him, he asked me to send him my email, which i did. He gave me a form to fill, I filled it and send it back to him. He told me that his god’s required some items in which he will use in casting a curing spell on me. I don’t know where to find the items he required. He told me that the only alternative is for of to send him the money, then he can help me to purchase the items from the items sellers. I promised myself to do anything to get cured. I sent him the money. He bought the items and casted a curing spell on me. Two day later he asked me to go for check-up, when i did the check-up i was tested HIV Negative. If you passing through hardship and you need a way out, kindly contact him via his email on dr.aribaspelltemple@outlook.com or call his number on +2348163979933

  • Adekanye p. Adebisi

    I’l like 2 know the latest on the quest for the cure for hiv/aids

  • earth

    PEOPLE ARE MAKING AND HAVE BEEN MAKING SO MUCH MONEY ON MEDECINE, UNFORTUNATELY THE CURE FOR CREATED DESEASES AND INFECTIONS BY MEN ARE NOT ON THE AGENDA, MAKE MORE MONEY IS THE FOCUS, DEATH IS JUST PART OF LIFE, THE HUMAN RACE, THE GOVERNEMENT OF THE MOST POWERFULL COUTRIES ONLY CARE ABOUT THEIR POWER AND CASH, WE ARE ALL BLIND AND ARMLESS, BUT SOON THE WOLRD WILL CHANGE AND FINALY ARE EYESAND HEART WILL MEET.BUT FOR NOW WE CAN ONLY PRAY.

  • Jay

    This is exciting for many reasons the philosophy behind this approach will work on finding a cure for many types of infections and diseases not just AIDS alone.

    It’s well known in biology that variant DNA raises (mutations) in living things as away to evolve adaptations for survival. We humans are also governed by this.

    Even now as I write there could be someone out there who could have an immunity to malaria or even an immunity to cancer. Now it’s just a matter of finding an econimical way to screen the board population to find those immune privileged few.

  • yulie leana

    so, is there a cure for aids?

  • Xavier

    I honestly think if they continue messing with this, there’s a high chance that we’ll end up like the residents of Racoon City in Resident Evil or I Am Legend.

  • pauline

    I have two sisters who needs help and if they can sign on for research it would be very helpful please help me.I hate to see them suffer.

  • In the long run preventing it is the cure. See: Small Pox.

  • Mark

    There is a big difference between curing a disease and preventing it.

  • Larry Genik

    The Body’s immune system is complex. Besides antibodies we have t-cells and b-cells. I mean really, HIV only attacks the T-cells. Can’t we program the B-cells to detect and fight the HIV virus, sparing the T-cells?

  • P M

    their beeen a cure for a while google dr bob beck he is legit

  • Nick

    What I would like to know is first dose this drug bloock the reverse transcriptase proses that the virus has on the antibodys and the helper T-cells. Also would it be too late if the virus alredy has travaled to the lymph nodes and started to slow the production of antibodys and helper T-cells?

  • I hope this works!! 09

  • Rye

    I think it’s amazing why don’t they attack the HIV strand with a weaker side of the CD4 and than pollute the entire HIV DNA, and Kill the RNA therefore results in complete takover of the white blood cell’s killing the rest to have the body depleat the bodys immunity and saving the world from the Blind Virus, that in some cases, kill’s bc it’s a stupid Strand. Imagine a strong one?

  • MD… that is always a concern, but vaccines such as against Small Pox have proven very effective and have not run into this problem.

  • MD

    It’s a double edged sword… on the one side Wellescent Health is correct, on the other, the vaccine may kill the weakest strains leaving the hardiest to soldier on and mutate.

  • raghavendra

    is there any curing medical to cure hiv if there the govt of india had been introduced . most of the doctor says hiv will not cure ….. anybody is there to answer these question …..

  • raghavendra

    reply to cure hiv

  • It will be interesting to see how the vaccines perform in clinical trials. With a vaccine that imparts such broad detection capabilities across numerous strains of the virus, this would be a powerful force in gaining control over the disease.
