News To Be Merry About: Possible Cure For HIV Infection


A possible vaccine for HIV virus responsible for AIDS has been found in Canada. The Canadian News reports.


Something the world can be merry about, these news will certainly come with a lot of hope for millions of people around the world living with the HI virus, majority of whom are in the African continent. 

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is reported to have given the green light for human clinical trial of the vaccine.

This January, the vaccine will be tested on HIV positive patients to see whether it kills the virus.

Canadian News reports:

It is the first preventive HIV vaccine approved for clinical trials to use a whole HIV-1 virus, which has been both killed and genetically engineered, to activate immunity.

In this way, the new vaccine is much like the killed whole virus vaccines that are successful against polio, rabies and influenza. 
“FDA approval for human clinical trials is an extremely significant milestone for our vaccine, which has the potential to save the lives of millions of people around the world by preventing HIV infection,” said Dr. Chil-Yong Kang, professor of virology at the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Western Ontario, in a release. 
The announcement came out from London on Tuesday morning. 
Ok let's not kid ourselves here. HIV/Aids has become big business for many pharmaceutical companies. Comdom production companies have also being huge benefactors in this "one man's poison is another's pleasure" scenario.

For years now, many have accused the west of dragging their feet in finding a cure for the disease because they were least affected by it whilst in an indirect way it benefited their economies. The news that the US were quick to get the ball rolling on testing the vaccine for human use will come as a vindication from those assumptions. 

But, what does this mean for South Africa? Should this vaccine be legit and effective it doesn't mean that all of the sudden you can sleep around without protection. It will take a lot of political maneuvering to get the vaccine accessible to the common man on the street. 

Take the situation with ARVs for instance; though they are available for free, their availability still has done very little to reduce the deaths that occur in this country as a results of HIV. 

The best cure for HIV is still to live a responsible lifestyle. Prevention is still better than cure. That's just my opinion. 

I do acknowledge though that these news are a welcome ray of sunshine for the human race especially our continent which could use a reprieve from this killer disease.

Wow!! Wonderful. But my question is, would people really care even if the vaccine is available to them! I mean the government is trying its best to eliminate the rise in hiv infection, what happens is that people still continue with unprotected sex. As you said, I, too, think this really should be looked at then precautions be taken by SA government before implementation could be given a go.

Good news indeed, although what you are hinting at is correct. It does have the potential to make a difficult job more difficult: that of getting people to use condoms, as there still are so many issues just with STI's/STD's (HPV being one) as human nature of course would be to be complacent and safe sex counselors/education would remain equally as important and pertinent. The collective attititude should be "NO GOING BACK" when it comes to sexual safety/health/self respect and undo the fantastic progess made thus far in the world. Thanks for the update, especially in light of losing one of SA's staunchist HIV activist this past week.

i will thank Mrs Bernille for letting the world knows the powerful man that help her from AIDS disease. This was what i have all my life been waiting for since i was infected by HIV last 6 months. I always spend money for drugs always but still yet my weight becomes poorer and my joint always getting painful and inching all day. But when i met this comment last 3 days, i quickly contacted Dr Camala the Traditional helper. He is from the western part of Africa, i didn't spend much as i spent for drugs each day, and i for the fact truly reason this because my life was already as take by this disease called AIDS. Truly, when it was 9:00 clock on Monday this week he called me that his oracle urgently required some few life items to enable the disease wipe out successfully, then i was asked to send down 200 usd ($). Which i did. He truly bought the items and surprisingly, yesterday afternoon Dr Camala called me that my work has been finally done and it work out well. I was glad and he told me to rush down to my hospital for checkup. Which i really did, my brothers and sisters i went down crying because no one has ever done this to a person in life. Dr Camala truly healed me. I was crying it was a dream to my eyes when the doctor said to me that I am HIV NEGATIVE. I am now a free born in life, am now like other people who now think things like human. For these days and forever, i will accept Dr Camala as my father and my healer and helper. He is a great man. Thank you sir. I know i cant reward you. But my God in heaven can. Thank you sir once again.

Regards.
