Montagnier, Nobel prize, Therapeutic aids vaccine in 3 years

Oct 13, 2008

Hello doc Fascino

I m happy to know that Luc Montagnier got the Nobel prize. I have been really surprised when immediately after the celebration, he told in front of the whole world, that a therapeutic aids vaccine, that can CURE hiv, will be ready within 3/4 years. For me it is very difficult to believe that this time they are still lying us. 3 years are indeed little time. What do you think?

Response from Dr. Frascino


I'm delighted Luc Montagnier and Françoise Barré-Sinoussi have won the Nobel. (I'm particularly delighted they snubbed Gallo!) As for Dr. Montagnier's comment, we can only hope he's correct. However, I feel he is being overly optimistic with his timeframe. But, hell, I'm not going to argue with a Nobel Prize-winning scientist!

Eventually, we'll all find out, as "time will tell!"

Dr. Bob

No question, just extending a thanks
