Possible Cure For The HIV Virus Within Months
« on: May 02, 2013, 04:00 pm »
Apparently there's a new treatment that has successfully treated patients with the HIV virus. Danish scientists are confident that a cure for the HIV virus may be within reach in just a few months. I found this to be interesting.
It's good to be Young.

Isn't it that where they release cancer into the virus or whatever?  I saw that on a medical show.

They had cured HIV in a newborn recently. They just pumped her full of medicine immediately after birth.

I doubt that it'll be effective forever. I suspect that HIV will evolve and become resistant to it.

I'm just speculating. I don't even know what the treatment is.

According to you, every treatment would soon fail to work because the germs would become resistant to them...

Why are we still alive then? xD

If that wasn't correct, what's your explanation? BTW, I meant to type "cure" instead of "disease" in the original post. xD Sorry for the confusing.
HIV might evolve. That's all he said.

Nada, HIV is a virus; it doesn't have much variation and can't use sexual reproduction to create it. Heck; technically it isn't even a living thing.

[Edit]: I did some extra poking around, HIV has far more variety than most other viruses :\

meh. I know nothing about HIV, I was just repeating what Etxbear said.

Other diseases can too.

Ha.

HIV is known to have a high mutation rate, as well as a high replication rate. This causes high genetic diversity and fast evolution in the virus. This treatment would kill off HIV weak to it, but eventually a few specimens of the virus will arise that are resistant, and as a result, be able to replicate more effectively than its dying relatives. This has been seen in species of bacteria that have developed resistance to commonly used antibiotics. It can, and has, happened in viruses too (in respect to antivirals instead of antibiotics, naturally). It's very likely to happen in HIV.

So I should just not have an opinion and accept that it'll work because they're professional scientists?
