Is it possible to get cured of aids?

Is it possible to get cured of aids?

No: There has been only one well documented caase of a cure, and it involved bone marrow transplantation with the marrow from a donor who was immune to hiv. This is not a practical way to cure HIV for people who don't need a marrow transplant, but it could lead to other approaches. There is a lot of money and effort being spent on cure research right now. ...Read more

Can you please describe the drugs used to cure aids completly?

Can you please describe the drugs used to cure aids completly?

No drugs for cure: There are no drugs currently that cures hiv, the virus that causes aids. The drugs that are available are called antiretroviral therapy. These drugs are able to clear the bloodstream of hiv, but HIV is very clever and is able to hide out in other places, like lymph nodes, where it can lay dormant or sleeping for years. The drugs are not able to get to these hiding places to kill hiv, thus no cure. ...Read more

Can you please explain why aids is impossible to cure and by when is man expected to find its cure?

Were not so smart!: Keep in mind something which i find fascinating. Whenever anyone gets any virus infection (common cold, flu, chicken pox, hiv, CMV etc)...It never really leaves our bodies. Yes symptoms of disease may go away..But its the virus which decides to stop replicating. It then hides in our dna in our spine..Waiting to come back (possibly..Like shingles from chicken pox). So..Were not really all that! ...Read more

How can I submit my cure for aids?

How can I submit my cure for aids?

Let's think: Please forgive my frankness. Life has taught me about the human capacity for self-deception, especially when we mean only the best. Science is the most cutthroat of all human activities, and if an actual cure existed that was simple enough to a lay person to discover, the nih piranhas would have found it long ago. Get the education you need to join real research ; your dream may yet come true. ...Read more

Is there a cure for aids?

No cure yet: It's not surprising that there's no cure yet. Hiv is a very complex virus that inserts its own dna into human dna. Even if you eliminate the circulating virus, there's still viral dna that can reactivate. It's also important to note that in the history of medicine, we have cured only one viral disease--hepatitis c--and only very recently. There is hope for a cure, but it won't happen soon. ...Read more

Are we getting close to find a cure for aids?

Not close yet: I would love to be optimistic and say that we will have a cure soon, but i think the researchers are still missing a key understanding of how HIV and/or how our immune system works or is affected by hiv. Understanding these issues will give us more information on how to combat hiv, likely via vaccination so that we can stimulate our own immune system to recognize and kill HIV everywhere in body. ...Read more
