Danish Breakthrough for HIV cure expected ‘within months’

The story was published by The Sydney Morning Hearld , it was also published by many others. I believe that the Danes are on the right track. Finding a way to release/flush out the hidden reservoirs (insert HDAC inhibitors) of HIV from our DNA and then having other drugs or our own boosted immune system (or a combination of both) eliminate them/inhibit future replication, sounds like a strong plausible basis for a cure. Wearing my optimists hat, I wish the Danish researchers and their collaborators speed and efficiency in their endeavor.

After posting this page I received some valid criticism from Gus Cains re hype. The original article has been resubmitted   Scientists’ hope for HIV cure

Danish breakthrough for HIV cure expected ‘within months’

A breakthrough in the search for a cure for HIV will come ”within months”, researchers believe.

Danish scientists are expecting results showing that it will be possible to find a cure that is both affordable and can be provided to a large number of people.

They are running clinical trials to test a ”novel strategy” in which the HIV virus, which causes AIDS, is stripped from human DNA and destroyed by the immune system.

It has already been found to work in laboratory tests and the scientists are now running human trials.

The technique involves releasing the HIV virus from ”reservoirs” it forms in DNA cells, bringing it to the surface of the cells. Once it comes to the surface, the body’s immune system can kill the virus through being boosted by a ”vaccine”.

In vitro studies – those that use human cells in a laboratory – of the new technique proved so successful that in January the Danish Research Council awarded the team 12 million kroner ($2 million) to pursue clinical trials with human subjects.

Ole Sogaard, a senior researcher at the Aarhus University Hospital in Denmark who is leading the study, said: ”I am almost certain we will be successful in releasing the reservoirs of HIV.

”The challenge will be getting the immune system to recognise the virus and destroy it. This depends on the strength and sensitivity of individual immune systems.”

Fifteen patients are taking part in the trials, and if they are found to have been cured of HIV, the process will be tested on a wider scale.

The technique uses drugs called HDAC inhibitors, more commonly employed in treating cancer.

It is also being researched in Britain, but studies have not yet moved on to the clinical trial stage.

    Wow this is Great News for sufferers, Long term eradication would be awesome. Maybe we may live to see the day a cure for people with HIV arrives. Exciting

    Oh boy, I wished you’d have put this in some context. This overhyped and inaccurate article was all over the blogosphere last week – and so were people debunking it and retracting it. It’s caused a lot of damage. See http://www.en.auh.dk/news+and+media/news+archive/shownews?showNews=126241 for the researchers’ correction of it, and http://www.thebody.com/content/71457/no-hiv-is-not-about-to-be-cured-in-three-months.html for David Evans’ explanation of why it’s wrong on the body.com. (I’m the ‘English activist’ mentioned who got the Telegraph headline changed.) And see http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/10022664/Scientists-hope-for-HIV-cure.html for the piece as it is now.
    I know your own comment is not actually agreeing there will be a cure ‘within months’ and nor are most of the detailed stories. But it’s the headline people remember. I would even dispute ‘breakthrough’ – what the Danish scientists have done is work on a somewhat better version of a class of drugs that *may* form the *first part* of a *hypothetical* cure for HIV. Even the optimists are talking about 5-10 years.

      whoever tries to find a cure will either be eliminated or the medicine will be declared an effective because HIV AID was created to crop the population explosion of mankind on earth till that purpose is reached by the initiators,HIV AID will continue to be good business for satanic HIV AID INVENTORS.They are happy to see innocent people die while they make business out of poor African countries by selling their ARVs if they are concerned about the infected people why don’t they give their condoms and their ARVs free to African sufferers GOD Is not going to spare them for destroying His people,They are satanic devils.

        Yes Imakumbili, also the evil US government agents responsible for the faked Apollo moon landings and the UFO cover-up, as well as the Zionist 9-11 conspirators (who also faked the Holocaust), will perish in hell-fire along with those pesky scientists responsible for the global warming climate change hoax. And then the little dog will laugh to see such a craft and the dish will run away with the spoon. You may join them if you wish – please do, and allow us intelligent people to focus on those little things called reality and rational discourse…
