hiv treatment
Sep 7, 2010

Dear Dr. Is this a really a big news for people who have just be infected like us please help i hope it is really a good news and gods blessing for us. Please advise.

Israeli researchers have developed a new treatment for HIV that kills human cells infected with the virus and could lead to a breakthrough in treating AIDS, the Haaretz newspaper said on Fri

Response from Mr. Vergel

There are news like that one almost every month. They are usually out when some in vitro (lab) study shows some activity, but they do not mention that it takes years to study options like that. So, I would not count on it yet. Take the HIV meds that your doctor prescribe and lets keep our eyes open for new developments in the next few years that may work on actually improving the way the immune system controls HIV.

As a long term activist, I am so happy that during the past year, the word CURE is appearing in many pilot studies. But we have to be careful not to get too excited when studies do not have any human data!
