Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is causing AIDS, which has become a global epidemic for many years. Almost from the last 30 years, HIV/AIDS is spreading day by day, and still, we have not an exact cure for it.
In this modern era, the number of patients is increasing, and disease has spread among them. Scientists are trying their best to find the best cure for HIV/AIDS. Many pieces of research are on the way to cure this disease.
They are working and trying their best. If the studies are continued, then there are high chances that we may find a permanent solution for that. Some scientists are hopeful, and they are saying a possible cure could be out by the end of 2019.
HIV/AIDS treated by stem cell transplant of CCR5 genes is considered the best treatment for HIV. Before that this already has been done and again, another patient showed remission.
The patient was diagnosed with HIV in 2003 and started to take antiretroviral medications. Moreover, he was also suffering from advanced Hodgkin’s lymphoma. So chemotherapy is done.
After that stem cell transplant with CCr5 gene was done and got the results similar to Timothy Ray Brown, he was the first person ever who cured for HIV with stem cell transplant.
He was cut off from drugs for 18 months and still sustained remission so considering to be cured of HIV. Therefore it is regarded as the possible cure for HIV. The vaccination for HIV is in the clinical trial, and results will be out at the end of the year 2019.
Scientist of temple university in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Univerity of Nebraska confirmed that the vaccination had thrived to kill HIV in a humanized model of mice. Furthermore, Johnson also confirmed that finally, the treatment has been developed after many years and entering into the human trial before the end of 2019.
Well, the anticipated results wi come out by 2023. Besides, Chinese researchers also announced that the HIV vaccine would enter into the second human trial within a year.
According to the UNAIDS global report of 2019, almost 38 million people have HIV globally. The report also revealed that approximately 53 percent of people have successfully suppressed the virus through therapies.
Well, hope for the good! If the trails give successful output, then we might have a permanent vaccine that can cure HIV/AIDS.
