Vaccination does not cure. It is a way to prevent disease by building immunity. It is hard to come up with a vaccine for AIDS because it affects the immune system itself, whic…h is what vaccines affect. Presently, there is no vaccine and no cure for AIDS. The available treatments can slow the progress of disease, but do not eliminate it.
no, however there is treatments that will slow the progression down, and help with the symptoms, and there are people trying to come up with a cure everyday. Yes but there is …a hope if a human does not have the receptor for HIV virus he will have HIV virus but he will never become AIDS patient. ----- A different answer:First, in asking such a question, it's critical that we get our terms right. HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is a retrovirus that attacks the subject's immune system, which makes them susceptible to a wide variety of other pathologies that normally would be unlikely attackers. This range of attackers is referred to as a Syndrome. AIDS is Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome. It's not really a disease in and of itself; it's a group of things that happen to the patient as a result of an HIV infection. Curing the syndrome may not be problematical once HIV is suppressed. And the news is strangely good. On December 10, 2010, Maggie Fox of Reuters News Agency reported, "German Doctors declare 'cure' in HIV Patient" The subject was diagnosed with HIV-1 and leukemia received a bone marrow transplant from a another patient who presented a mutation known to cause an immunity to HIV-1. 4 years later, the patient tests free of HIV. This treatment is not the end of the road for HIV researchers. Transplants of this nature are dangerous cures, and only typically offered to end-stage leukemia patients, do to the risks involved. A simpler, less dangerous and more readily available cure is still desirable and still not discovered. This work, however, is technically a cure, and appears to be repeatable.
The current medical research on cures for HIV and AIDS looks very promising. ...However, the current approach of HIV drug maintenance can keep patients alive, at a cost of $…300 - $2,500 PER PATIENT/PER MONTH *INDEFINITELY* This profits pharmaceutical companies at approaching $10,000,000,000.00 per year. Over the course of the next few decades, this will likely grow to exceed $1,000,000,000,000.00 per year. A cure would instantly eliminate this entire profit margin. What do you think a pharmaceutical company (and its stockholders) would do if they came up with a cure? If a cure comes, it will almost certainly come from the academic community. In fact, a cure might already exist. Answer: Almost certainly. However, the genetics invovled are remarkabke, surprising and complex. AIDS for instance is not one "germ" -- it's a syndrome cause by HIV, which in turn is highly mutable (it changes a lot), making a vaccine very hard to develop. There's a huge amount of money and research going into this. If you like to hear about silver linings in dark clouds, you should expect to see some remarkable improvements in other areas of healthcare (notably cancer treatment) once this cure is nailed bown The simple truth is that we just do not know. Although modern antiretroviral drugs can now help your immune system to destroy HIV at a faster rate than it can replicate, there are still a number of major obstacles that, on balance, seem to make it unlikely that a cure will be found in the foreseeable future. The first problem is that whilst modern antiretroviral drugs are very good at suppressing levels of HIV in the blood and the major life-supporting organs of the body; they tend to be much less effective at suppressing HIV in place like the testicles, prostate and brain. In fact, very few antiretroviral drugs have any significant effect on HIV levels in the brain .. and those that do cause side effects that are quite simply unbearable for a small, but significant, proportion of patients. This means that despite it being possible for a supported immune system to destroy far more HIV than is being replicated, there are almost always isolated, but highly active, reservoirs of rapidly reproducing HIV somewhere in the body. The second problem is that HIV actually modifies the genetic material of an infected cell - so once a cell is infected, it stays infected until it dies (or is destroyed by the immune system). In order to detect an infected cell that needs to be destroyed, the immune system relies on being able to identify those cells in which HIV is actively reproducing. Unfortunately, because HIV also has the ability to lay dormant for many decades, not all infected cells are actively reproducing HIV .. meaning that even if a means were found to kill all actively reproducing infected cells in the body, there would still be huge reservoirs of dormant HIV waiting to spring into life at a later date. Rather than curing the people who are currently infected, the next big step in controlling the spread of HIV seems most likely to come from one of several potential vaccines; but even this is complicated and is unlikely ever to be able to provide 100% protection from infection. Some viruses - and HIV is one of them - are able to mutate and change their appearance. This means that different antibodies are required to fight different mutations (it is exactly the same principle by which getting a common cold, or the flu, does not protect you from the huge number of other cold and flu variants in circulation .. and why flu vaccines do not provide protection against all forms of the flu). It is therefore likely that any HIV vaccine - just like any flu vaccine - will only be able to provide a degree of protection against a certain number of the more common and aggressive HIV mutations. All of that said, HIV research is a very rapidly moving moving field of medical science; so we should remain optimistic. Fifteen years ago, we had no effective means of controlling HIV and infection seemed like an almost certain death sentence. Today, HIV is increasingly seen as just an unpleasant life sentence to an ever more manageable chronic condition. Who really knows where we will be in another fifteen years? Yes in school i am learning about htis there is only VERY expensive pills u can take that u only take the HIV and "put it in the corner" Alternative Answer Possibly yes, if you consider alternative medicine like Nick Nolte and Magic Johnson and others. 1984 U.S. Patent #4,647,773 Method of continuous production of retroviruses (HTLV-III) from patients with AIDS and pre-AIDS (Dr. Robert C. Gallo, et. al.) 1990 U.S. Patent #5,188,738 Alternating current supplied electrically conductive method and system for treatment of blood and / or synthetic fluids with electrical forces. (Dr. Steven Kaali, et. al.) 1997 U.S. Patent #5,676,977 Method of curing AIDS with tetrasilver tetroxide molecular crystal devices (Marvin S. Antelman, Israel) A person treated using the 1997 patented one-time injection claims to be HIV-free several years afterwards. Starting in 2003 Dr. Boyd Ed Graves has petitioned the US courts and US congress to institute funding for clinical trials. Microsoft's Bill Gates was notified that the HIV AIDS cure had been tested on subjects and known to work. According to Dr. Robert C. Beck, DSc. Physics, slightly over 2 thousands AIDS patients in Southern California having undergone "The Beck Protocol" that is derived from the Dr. Steven Kaali MD method were pronounced as having PCR tests indicating that they had viral loads indistinguishable from zero on the measurement equipment used to conduct such testing. Magic Johnson, a long known HIV AIDS patient, has undergone unconventional therapies (in either Germany or Cuba or India or Mexico) such as medical grade intravenous (IV) ozone treatments and has survived many years (supposedly with the disease). (See Dr. Robert Rowen MD Describes Benefits of Ozone Therapy). An intracellular compound that is a mixture of DMSO, chlorine dioxide, citric acid, and other ingredients is being discussed in alternative medicine blogs as having a profound immune system enhancing effect. The mixture ingredients have been changed slightly over the past few years, but has come to be known as the Overnight Cancer Cure. A German HIV AIDS patient who also had leukemia was cured of AIDS when the German doctor treating his leukemia irradiated his bone marrow, then genetically screened marrow and stem cell donors for a genetic resistance / immunity to HIV. After the bone marrow and stem cell transplant was completed, the patient's HIV AIDS disappeared. See the huge list of related links in the Related Question "Can HIV be cured?" and especially, "Is there a cure for HIV AIDS?" below ... There may be. Doctors are working very hard on it.
Short answer: No. Long answer: Maybe. You need to wait till all the tests are complete first.
Those infected with HIV should seek the medical care of an Infectious Disease Specialist or other certified medical professional. There are many treatment options available. T…hough, at present, there is no cure.
No. It is not possible to contract AIDS without first having HIV. Technically AIDS is not a disease but a list of symptoms. HIV is the name of a virus. The virus destroy…s T4 cells which are part of the human disease defense system. When the body can no longer defend itself from a certain group of diseases, you die. AIDS was the name given to a particular set of symptoms when the body lost the normal ability to fight certain diseases. We now know that the body loses that ability because the HIV virus destroys T4 immune cells. Drugs that kill the HIV virus treat AIDS. A lot of work is being done to stop the spread of AIDS by stopping the spread of the HIV virus. Male circumcision almost stops female to male transmission by sexual intercourse. Using worm medicine seems to have some effect in keeping women from catching HIV. Condoms help. Using new needles for every procedure in doctors' offices and hospitals stops the spread of HIV there. Using needle swap programs for drug abusers seems to help. Avoiding blood to blood contact helps. When HIV is no longer transferred from one person to another, AIDS will vanish.

There is no cure for HIV or AIDS. The enzymes in an HIV strain are so different, that it would be impossible to make a "chemical" that could target a very specific strai…n. Chemicals can't cure AIDS. AIDS is the body's defence mechanisms failing instead of fighting back infections and so on. To stay healthy, if you are HIV+ you need to have a lifestyle that includes all the nutrition like fruits and veggies etc to keep your body healthy and resistant to all sorts of infection. You need to keep your immunity high.

Fever is a symptom and not a disease and we don't actually cure it, we make it temporarily go away until it's normal time limit is over (usually max 3 days). The problem with …the HIV virus is that it's not constant, it changes its characteristics. So the first medicine works on the first version characteristic but not on the second version characteristic.
Unfortunately, there is no known cure for HIV/AIDS.
There is no cure. Prevention is to avoid all sexual and/or blood contact with any person who has the disease.
HIV/AIDS can't be cured because once you get it it won't go away.
Yes grind the seed of bitter cola mix with a little honey,then pray because by faith we move mountain take morning and night for four days,don't eat while taking the mixture
sad to say but there still is no cure for HIV/aids, only medications prescribed by a physician.
There is no cure, because no doctor's have found out a cure to HIV/AIDS yet. So they have tried to make cures but the cures have not worked. The HIV Virus mutates regularly…; becoming resistant to treatment. Since it is a virus, it modifies the DNA of cells that it attacks (T-cells) so that the previously healthy cells themselves become manufacturers of more HIV virii. Additionally, the HIV virus attacks cells that are normally used to DEFEND your body against viral attacks. So even if a healthy T-Cell were to go after the HIV virus in your system, it would lose the battle, and become a virus-generating cell itself. There is an EXCELLENT video available here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RO8MP3wMvqg ... which shows how HIV replicates, and some of the ways that current treatment works to attempt to block the HIV Replication cycle.
There are numerous resources to find information on the symptoms for HIV and AIDS. The WebMD online information is very accurate. One can also refer to the local library to f…ind detailed information on symptoms for HIV and AIDS.
In Stem Cells
Research is being done to see whether or not the promising results of stem cell research in other medical areas could be applied to the treatment of curing of HIV.
