The potential cure for AIDS has been discovered by scientists at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research in Australia. The AIDS cure they are developing first came about in 2007 after Dr. David Harrich and his team came upon a new result in their research, and they have since been refining and further developing the experiment techniques.
If further testing works, the cure would mutate the HIV cells so they self-destruct and cannot replicate. This would then prevent HIV from continuing to damage one's immune system and those infected with the virus would not further deteriorate. An AIDS cure such as this would be a monumental step forward in tackling the disease.
Despite the intriguing and amazing news, utilizing the potential cure for HIV and AIDS is going to take quite a bit of time yet. The cure will be tested this year in mice, and if that goes well, clinical trials could happen within the next ten years. While that is still a long time for people to wait, the AIDS cure breakthrough is big news and gives hope to many affected by the disease.
