Cure for HIV on the Horizon?
August 25, 2008 8:58am CST
According to this article, some researchers have discovered a weakness in the HIV virus which may lead to a cure soon. The only thing lacking in their research is funding to launch human trials. If the human trials are successful, they could be ready to help HIV patients with the cure in as little as five years. The need for funding of this project is definietly a good reason to write your Congressperson, in my opinion. What do you think? http://www.fox11az.com/news/topstories/stories/NWkmsb20080730_hiv_breakt-hrough.1971ecbd.html

You're probably right about that. There are so many people who will benefit from this I'm sure private funding will be provided by someone. I'm surprised the research is in need of finances at this point. You'd think people would jump on this quickly. Perhaps it is such a new development they haven't had time to publicize it enough.
