HIV cure coming soon

by Caroline Wayua


HIV cure has been a challenge to many scientists, in the current world the only medicine which is been used by many is medicine which slows the action of the virus.

The recent expert experiments have shown hope to getting a cure of this feared disease. An experiment done by Dr. Louis Picker described his experiment vaccine as ‘kafkaesque’. The experiment was tested on 16 monkeys, protected only 9 of them but also did something curious- eliminating the virus completely in those that were cured.


Recent work by Picker a vaccine expert at Oregon Health and Science University has shaken up the long frustrating search for an Aids vaccine. Picker tested his vaccine in 16 monkeys who were then infected with simian immunodeficiency virus, a close relative of HIV which normally would have sent them spiraling rapidly down to a miserable death. The experiment vaccine only protected nine of them but also did something never seen before. These monkeys slowly ‘cleared’ the virus and now appear to be cured. Three years later you can’t tell them from other monkeys.

Dr. Anthony S Fauci, the head of National Institute for allergy and infectious diseases said the effect was ‘unique’ and Dr. Barton F. Haynes the director of the human vaccine institute of Duke University Medical School said it was extremely important to understand how this happened.


Who knows what would happen if this goes in to human. The journey to finding HIV cure may come to an end soon and world will soon be cured from this deadly disease.
