Don't come back into this thread unless it is to apologize, to all people who suffer and / or are dying from aids and to the people who intended to support them with this thread. :mad:

I studied AIDS/HIV in human biology and its an absolutely horrifying disease. They are nowhere near close to a cure, or a truly successful transmission prevention. I keep them all in my prayers. :( Thanks Anubis.

sorry its just that someone wants to act like their smart and knows all about this because "theyve studied it" :rolleyes: when really they have no idea, so they make a big generalization that makes it seem like theres no hope, when everyday we get closer and closer to a cure.

If you think the information I have given you is incorrect, then fair enough. Im merely sharing with you what my lecturer taught me. I'll continue to believe my lecturer, who has a Ph.D on transmissible human infections, and you can believe an internet article. Darling the media and the internet, as trust worthy as they always are, arent always right.

And if you actually read your precious article then you will discover that the miraculous "cure" is actually merely only a way of managing the disease, again something we learned about in class.

The results suggest that [these] vaccines could be a promising strategy for treating people with chronic HIV infection Thats fantastic, but the patients arent cured. It is merely prolonging the infectious period. They are still infected, and their blood is still toxic to another human being. They can still TRANSMIT the disease. And whilst T-Cells are no longer dropping, which is positive, all that means is that oppurtunistic infections have a less likely chance of taking hold of the infected person.

See, oppurtunstic infections are what an AIDS victim dies from. Tuberculosis, mainly (1/3 of AIDS/HIV deaths) but all kinds, from influenza, to pnuemonia and even sexually transmitted diseases. When the T-Cells are low enough, oppurtunistic infections attack. So this new drug might raise the T-Cells enough to prevent oppurtunstic infections, but the human still has AIDS, and can still die.

It isnt a cure. They are not close to a cure, nor a successful prevention method because AIDS/HIV is at an all time high.

Which makes you a rash fool, so get off your high horse.

Again, those suffering HIV/AIDS are in my prayers. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/hug.gif

You are correct there chicken, i dont think there will be ever a cure, but stunting its development sounds promising to say the least.

Could we not put teh biccering to one side and just have a nice thread.

I dont know much about teh desease only some facts, but what i do know is its not pleasent and i wish anyone with the desease all the best and the next time i see a ribbon i shall buy one thanks.

Also thanks for pointing this out to me, but i honestly did not know the date for this, its not being ignorant, i have just neve been taught or told so thanks again.

Having looked after people all over the world with HIV/AIDS I think the fact that we can openly discuss this in this forum is a wonderful thing regardless of the comment. Someplaces I have worked decline to acknowledge the disease and it's transmission. One country in particular states that it had an infection rate of zero. When we started treating the patients though it was not the picture we got. So any discussion is good. Discussion leads to education which will hopefully lead to decreasing rates of infection.
