This British Man Can Be The First Person To Cure From HIV

The human immunodeficiency virus, known as HIV is one of the most deadly viruses for the human body. It eventually leads to AIDS. AIDS fails your immune system little by little, making people more prone for other types of cancer.


According to the US Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, about 36.7 million people are living with HIV worldwide


HIV patients live only 9 to 11 years after they are diseased. Many people are unaware about them being diseased with HIV and most of them who know, are not aware of the preventive measures or the treatment they should take further. 


These sufferers fear from going to the doctors since they are discriminated in the society because of people’s perception about getting infected from them even by their touch. The disease could not be cured until this person came up.


Now, there is hope against HIV. Read on to know how.

A British man, aged 44 years old might just get cured of HIV

The HIV virus in his body can no longer be traced in his blood. If it still cannot be found for a long time then this would be the first case of a complete HIV cure.

A group of scientists from five UK universities are doing their best

The managing director of the National Institute for Health Research Office for Clinical Research Infrastructure, Mark Samuels said that they are assessing for the possibility of curing HIV finally. It’s tough but there has been tremendous progress.

The human T–cells not only ignore the virus but also reproduce it

Around the world, HIV therapies have not been able to deal with the T-cells.

The new therapy has two steps

First, the vaccine assists patient’s body to recognize the HIV infected cells. This can help to get rid of these cells. And second, a drug named Vorinostat helps in activating the dormant T-cells that supports the immune system and help in identifying the infected cells.

Professor Sarah Fiddler says the therapy aims to remove every HIV virus

A consultant physician Sarah Fiddler working at Imperial College London said that this therapy was designed to remove each and every virus of HIV from the body.

Isn’t this wonderful? So many people might get cured if this therapy works. We wish for the miracle to happen :)
