HOPE for an HIV CURE

| 1 Comment
I remember a few years back reading an article where a leading AIDS researcher was quoted as saying, "HIV will never be cured." I was devastated. To think, that someone at the helm of research had no belief in a cure for a disease that, if not cured, would destroy millions of lives, worldwide.  

There will always be nay-sayers, and there will always be those special few who set out to accomplish the "impossible," and succeed. Think about it. Once upon a time, someone said the world was flat, we'll never walk on the moon, and a cure for HIV would never happen...

Never say Never, friends. Hats off to Dr. Hutter and Timothy Brown for attempting the "impossible," and would you just look where that got them. Now that we know that HIV eradication is indeed possible, this will surely lead to newer and more innovative cure research. We have much to look forward to!

Pictured below is Dr. Gero Hutter, the German hematologist who will go down in history as the first to "cure" or eradicate the HIV virus from someone infected with the disease.
