Danish researchers and scientists believe that they will find a cure for HIV within months. They are presently waiting for results of clinical trials where HIV virus is stripped from human DNA and destroyed permanently by the immune system.
The technique consists of releasing the HIV virus from the reservoirs it forms inside DNA to bring it to the surface of the cell. Once at the surface, the body’s natural immune system would destroy the virus through being boosted by a vaccine.
Dr Ole Søgaard, a senior researcher at the Aarhus University Hospital in Denmark says : “I am almost certain that we will be successful in releasing the reservoirs of HIV. The challenge will be getting the patients’ immune system to recognise the virus and destroy it. This depends on the strength and sensitivity of individual immune systems.”
They think that within five years we could see a cure that can be offered on a large scale! That is awsome! Keep it up friends
