There isn't a drug available that will do the job as yet.

The root of the problem when explaining this is that people are not aware that viruses do not reproduce. The viruses enter cells and use the cells to make more viruses.


To cure AIDS or any viral condition, the virus has to be destroyed where it replicates. That is in the cell. Furthermore, the virus has to be destroyed in other parts of an organism where it resides.


Observations that are often quoted on the net aren't followed up by the researchers because these observations are impractical. Killing the virus in vitro is not killing the entire infection in vivo.


To clarify that, we already have anti-retroviral drugs that limit the re-infectivity in a person.. This means the amount of viral damage to the person can be limited. It doesn't meant the person is cured as the constant likelihood of reinfection by viruses from where they replicate (the cells in the immune system) will reinfect the person if the drug therapy is ended.




Anyone who stops their AIDS therapy to receive some strange treatment outside their country is putting them self at great risk.


Anyone who presupposes a new sexual partner to be risk free is putting them self and any other sexual partners at great risk.
