SIGNS THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END?
A CURE FOR AIDS?
I don’t know that I can love this. I know that AIDS is a terrible disease and it serves a purpose of some sort. But, I’m not gonna get all crazy with the conspiracy theories, not that they are all crazy. I’m here to say there is a cure for HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. Now, there was a link on another site, but that link was killed so I am wondering if there is some funny BIZ going on. The Huffintonton Post has something up though and it remains. I’m assuming this means it is more credible that false.
On the heels of World AIDS Day comes a stunning medical breakthrough: Doctors believe an HIV-positive man who underwent a stem cell transplant has been cured as a result of the procedure.
Timothy Ray Brown, also known as the Berlin Patient, received the transplant in 2007 as part of a lengthy treatment course for leukemia. His doctors recently published a report in the journal Blood affirming that the results of extensive testing strongly suggest that cure of HIV infection has been achieved.
Browns case paves a path for constructing a permanent cure for HIV through genetically-engineered stem cells.
Last week, Time named another AIDS-related discovery to its list of the Top 10 Medical Breakthroughs of 2010. Recent studies show that healthy individuals who take antiretrovirals, medicine commonly prescribed for treating HIV, can reduce their risk of contracting the disease by up to 73 percent.
While these developments by no means prove a cure for the virus has been found, they can certainly provide hope for the more than 33 million people living with HIV worldwide. Alongside such findings, global efforts to combat the epidemic have accelerated as of late, with new initiatives emerging in the Philippines and South Africa this week.
The reason this is a sign the world is coming to an end is because there is always some ulterior motive when there is breaking news this great. It will probably cost an arm leg leg arm to get it.
