Highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) has been a game changer in the battle against HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. It suppresses the deadly virus to virtually undetectable levels in the blood, so those being treated for HIV can live almost symptom-free for as long as they take the drugs. However, if a patient stops therapy, there are silent reservoirs of HIV — undetected by the immune system — that spring to life and reignite the virus.

The latest avenue of research involves discovering drugs that flush out this silent reservoir, so the virus can be recognized and killed by the immune system. One drug that shows particular promise at unmasking the virus, potentially offering a cure, is a compound called PEP005, which is used to treat precancerous skin lesions http://www.voanews.com/content/cancer-drug-shows-promise-flushing-out-reservoirs-of-hiv/2887924.html

Are ya'll niccas actually more worried of that than STDs? With syphilis, gonorrhea, herpes and other shit outchea, I'd think that the deterrent would be rotting from the inside out or vice versa!!

Priorities and information. Ya'll don't have any.

technically speaking, the drug that can flush viruses from hiding can cure ANY viral infections. So all STIs, viruses and probably most animal diseases e.g Ebola will be a thing of the past like polio

The therapy was pioneered years back by a pharmacy lecturer at Technical University( while still Kenya Polytechnic) and has support of National Aids Control Council. Now these wazungus purport it to be their discovery...shindwe.

True. A Dr. Baraza if I'm not wrong. But it may take years before the "cure" is approved. Clinical trials have to be done and the results have to be published.

ION, what happened to the one "discovered" by Prof. Obel?
