    Wow, this has only been tested in mice so far, but if this works in humans like it did for them, this looks like it may turn out to be a vaccine/cure for AIDS!


    Hope for new AIDS protection seen in mouse study - Boston.com


    All I know is, if it works, there's going to be one hell of a party on the day they announce the cure.

    Of course, the big question would then be: Would right-wing politicians then try to stop people from getting it?

    You know, you really have to love how all the work on treating a disease comes from for-profit Pharma Corporations...

    ...And all the work on CURES comes from charities and the Federal Government.

    That's really telling.

    I hope it works but it seems to be a sissie pipe dream. The "A" in Aids still stands for acquired.

    Did not prevent infection or reduce the amount of HIV in the blood...
    :eusa_eh:
    HIV Vaccine Study Cancelled
    April 26, 2013 - The U.S. National Institutes of Health has cancelled a study testing an experimental HIV vaccine because scientists concluded it did not prevent infection or reduce the amount of HIV in the blood. HIV is the virus that causes AIDS.
