Is there a cure for AIDS?
There is currently no actual cure for AIDS, but there are drugs which are used to slow down the effects of AIDS. Unfortunately, it costs too much for the majority of people infected with the AIDS virus (HIV) to afford the drugs on their own.

No, but it may kill you.......
There is no known cure for the AIDS virus. Vaccines are created as preventative medicines to help protect individuals that do not already have a disease from contracting t…he virus.
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.

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.
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.
False. There is no cure yet for AIDS. Antibiotics work on bacteria. So if an AIDS patient gets a secondary bacterial infection, it would be appropriate for them to take antib…iotics to help with the bacterial infection. AIDS is caused by the HIV virus, so antibiotics would be ineffective for treatment of the AIDS itself, just secondary infections associated with the AIDS. They are especially prone to these because of the lowered ability of AIDS patients' immune systems to fight disease.
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.
There is still NO cure for AIDS. Although scientists continue to research the disease, there isn't a vaccine yet either - and there probably won't be for another 10 or even 20… years. Once infected, there is no way to get the virus out of your body. However, there are some drugs which help to slow down the damage HIV does to your immune system and therefore slow down the onset of AIDS. There are also other drugs to prevent or treat some of the opportunistic infections (OIs) that affect people with HIV/AIDS Currently the most successful treatments are combination or "cocktail" therapies, where HIV patients take a range of different antiretroviral drugs such as reverse transcriptase inhibitors (like AZT) and protease inhibitors (like Amprenavir). But these drugs are extremely expensive and unavailable in many parts of the world. They can also cause a number of difficult side effects and for about 20% of patients they do not work at all. Don't be complacent - improved treatments do not mean that HIV/AIDS has become a manageable condition. HIV is a constantly changing and mutating virus and if doses of medication are missed, infected people can become immune to the very drugs they are taking. This can seriously limit future treatment options. If you are HIV positive, the most important thing is to lead a healthy life and take good care of your body by eating well and exercising.
absolutely! I used to have AIDS. I was dying of AIDS for 2 years when I met a roaming gypsy lady. I immediately stabbed her to steal her tears...I put them in a j…ar and drank them down. NOw I'm Healthy! wanna do it?
Short answer: No. Long answer: Maybe. You need to wait till all the tests are complete first.
yes they have many toxins in them that cure these dieseases, yes.
There is no cure. Prevention is to avoid all sexual and/or blood contact with any person who has the disease.
There is at this point in time no cure for HIV and AIDS. Once someone gets it, they have it for life. ----------------------- But slajeet is the one can help so…meone's life or enjoy long life as young peron find more details on http://ganish.webs.com/apps/webstore/products/show/530808
No, there is currently no known cure for AIDS.
