Here is some good news in the progression in trying to find a cure for HIV/AIDS. According to the AP,
New research shows significant promise in an HIV prevention drug that would be given as a shot every one to three months. The experimental drug has only been tested in monkeys, but it completely protected them from HIV infection in two studies reported at an AIDS conference yesterday (March 4th) in Boston. Truvada, a drug used to treat people with HIV, is also used to help prevent infection in people who don’t have the virus, with a large study in gay men a few years ago finding it could cut the risk by up to 90 percent. The new research tested a way to make this type of prevention much more practical with a long-lasting drug.
This is exciting news! I believe that there will be a cure in the next 10 to 15 years.
