Could long kiss leads to aids if done to multiple relation person as per I read in newspaper saying its foud recenlty and its in testing process?
No: I believe there has been a single case report (over the last 32 years) documenting HIV transmission from kissing, but it involved two people with poor dentition, gingivitis, and bleeding gums. Not something anyone should spend too much time worrying about. In fact, I don't even like thinking about it, after reading the case report! ...Read more

Less than a day?: I don't know of a study on this but in general most viruses don't survive long in dead tissue. Attempts to culture virus post-mortem are usually done as quicly as possible for that reason. I would suspect the success of such a culture more than 24 hours after death would be low. ...Read more
Doctor how long does it takes before the symptoms of HIV aids begin to manifest in an infected person?
Don't wait!: You're asking a meaningless question. Experts no longer distinguish between having HIV versus AIDS. It's all HIV/AIDS, with "AIDS" the end stage. Nobody should wait for advanced infection (AIDS) to start treatment. Everyone with HIV must be treated, otherwise they will die sooner than necessary. If you have delayed Rx up til now, it's time to move forward. See an HIV specialist soon. Good luck! ...Read more
Many reasons: There are many technical reasons why it is taking so long to find a cure for AIDS. Vaccines are in development, but HIV hides very well from detection by the immune system. Our current meds can clear HIV from blood, but it hides out in places where the meds can't reach. HIV also damages the immune response so that even if we detect HIV, it cannot clear HIV from the body effectively. ...Read more
Many years: In the days before effective treatment, the average time from infection to an aids diagnosis was 10 years. Some people progressed much faster than that, and some much slower. Everyone should get tested, so that they don't find out they're hiv-infected by getting diagnosed with aids. ...Read more
Because of HAART: Hiv/aids is no longer felt to be a terminal illness if detected early enough and if a person takes highly active antiretroviral therapy, or haart. People with HIV can now live close to a normal lifespan if they take care of themselves and continue haart, which will help to restore their damaged immune system. However, there are still a few people who die from hiv/aids if disease is too advanced. ...Read more
Tough to say!: I would say that while funding is helpful to finding a cure, what we are missing is key piece (s) of understanding of how the virus works and how it hides from our immune system. We need to understand how our own immune system works as well. There is a lot of vaccine research to understand how to stimulate our own immune system to recognize and kill HIV in every infected cell in the body. ...Read more
