HIV/AIDS Vaccine Completely Clears HIV Virus In Monkeys

Here's a big breakthrough in HIV/AIDS vaccine research!

Science Daily reports:

An HIV/AIDS vaccine candidate developed by researchers at Oregon Health & Science University appears to have the ability to completely clear an AIDS-causing virus from the body. The promising vaccine candidate is being developed at OHSU's Vaccine and Gene Therapy Institute . It is being tested through the use of a non-human primate form of HIV, called simian immunodeficiency virus, or SIV, which causes AIDS in monkeys. Following further development, it is hoped an HIV-form of the vaccine candidate can soon be tested in humans.

....

"To date, HIV infection has only been cured in a very small number of highly-publicized but unusual clinical cases in which HIV-infected individuals were treated with anti-viral medicines very early after the onset of infection or received a stem cell transplant to combat cancer," said Louis Picker, M.D., associate director of the OHSU Vaccine and Gene Therapy Institute. "This latest research suggests that certain immune responses elicited by a new vaccine may also have the ability to completely remove HIV from the body."

While we encourage you to head over to Science Daily for the detailed breakdown, we'll give you the overview as we understand it. 

Basically researchers have paired SIV (the monkey form of HIV) with CMV (a common virus amongst the population called cytomegalovirus).

This combined SIV/CMV generates "effector memory" T-cells that are indefinitely capable of finding and destroying SIV-infected cells.

With that in mind, monkeys are being given this SIV/CMV vaccine and then are given "highly pathogenic" SIV. 50 percent of these monkeys became infected with SIV but over time eliminated all traces of SIV from their bodies.

Score!

As Science Daily sums it up: "In effect, the hunters of the body were provided with a much better targeting system and better weapons to help them find and destroy an elusive enemy."

Pretty huge and VERY promising!

Researchers are hopeful that pairing their modified CMV vector with HIV will lead to a similar result in humans. They're also trying to figure out how to ensure that more monkeys have a positive response to the vaccine. 

The full study was published in the journal Nature on Sept. 11.

  HELLO, i want to share this wonderful testimony to the world as a whole in case there is some body in this same situation. i was diagnosed of HIV in the year 2009 until i meant testimony online by a woman with name Anita about a man called Dr Okoro , i was not too sure if it was real until i contacted him my self . I thought that there was never a cure for my deadly ailment but Dr Okoro told me that his herbs could cure me, and then i decided to give him a try, he then told me that once i start taking his herbs, that it will only take me some days to be cured, i believed him and took the herb with faith. after he gave me the medication, i took it and i was feeling some new signs in my body and i decided to go for a test and the result stated that i was HIV negative, i was very happy and even called my pastor and told him about it, i am very happy that i am now HIV negative and i am also happy that i will not be celebrating this Christmas as an HIV patient as i have did for the past 4 years, so help me say a very big thank you to Doctor Okoro for saving me from the hands of the deadly ailment. if you are also in this type of situation and you are seeking for solution, seek no more for you have received the right information you have been wanting for a very long time in this type of issues you are very free to contact Dr Okoro today through his private email: Drokorotemplt@gmail.com or call him on his mobile number : +2348051785597. i strongly believe that he will help you out just as he did mine, stay cool and God bless Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year in advance.

HIV is a terrible disease, if not for my Husband and the help of the great Dr. Oraede my life would have been a mess! I was diagnosed with HIV in 2005, my husband encouraged me, and told me not to lose hope, I manage to give birth to a baby Boy who was free from the disease, and my Husband was always there for me! One day he came to me and told me that he have found a man who can cure me. Base on scientist, they said there is no cure for HIV; he told me that he has seen many testimonies about him on the internet. We decided to contact him, we filled his Herbal home form, and he asked us to buy some items which we did! Three days later he asked me to go for HIV test, faithfully I went to do the Test, Lo and Behold, I was cured, the virus was not found in my Body... My Dear Husband and my Father Dr. Oraede, God will surely bless the both of you, till the end of time, in Jesus name.. If you have any problem kindly contact he on Dr.oraedespellhome@hotmail.com  or you can reach him via his mobile phone on +2348161879468.....

Dr. Oraede cured my HIV disease I’m in deed very grateful for his kind work upon my life, I never thought I will be free from that disease, and here am I today I’m no longer a HIV patient. I’m so happy; get your healing from him contact him via dr.oraedespellhome@hotmail.com or call his mobile line on +2348161879468

i am NANCY by name, i want to tell the whole world how i got my hiv cured, i live in Manchester united kingdom, presently i am working as a teacher in an high school, i was once a stripper in a club and i got affected with HIV due to the nature of my job, in February 2nd 2009, This is not design to convince you but its just a personal health experience.
 I never taught doctor LAWCY could ever get my HIV-AIDS cured with his healing herb spell, i have been spending so much buying my drugs for the past three years now and taking several medication but no relieve, until one day i was just browsing on the internet when i came across a great post of MARIAN, who explained to me how a great dr called PAPA LAWCY helped her, by curing her from HIV, i thought as much and i quicklly contacted him, and he gave to me the assurance that he is going to help me with his herbs, he told me to buy the herbs which he will use for the preparation of my medicine which i did, he prepared the medicine and told me how i am going to take them which i did, just three days later i went to the hospital to give the final test and the doctor confirm that i am now negative, i am so happy that GOD sent DR LAWCY to help me out of my problems, if you are out there passing through this kind of problem, you can also contact him on DRLAWCYSPELLHOME@GMAIL.COM.com, and i pray that he will help you also.
  All thanks to DR LAWCY, you can contact me on +44702407841  

Interesting.  From 1993-1996, I worked in the Department of Clinical Pharmacology at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver.  My primary responsibility was managing a 3-year nation-wide AIDS treatment study.  During that time, I proposed we think about developing what I called a "decoy virus" - one that would attract the HIV virus which would enter the decoy virus where it would be destroyed because the virus would attempt to replicate genetic code that terminated in non-replicable code.  I guess I wasn't too far off after all.  Good to see that something similar is now a viable approach.

Sign me up!  I've been living with HIV for 30+ years. Even if there was a minute possibility of success, I'd take it!

 i want to be your first human to be tested on this  email me and lets do it
