What is the cure for HIV?
There is currently no cure for HIV. There is a cocktail that can be administered very quickly after exposure to the virus that may prevent you from contracting it, though. The only solutions for avoiding AIDS are abstinence and practicing safe sex.

HIV . There is no current cure for HIV.. See the related question(s) for more info.
There is no known cure for HIV nor AIDS at the moment. There are alot of different kind of meds you must take daily to treat it, andnobody has found a cure for it. It can be fatal without treatment.If you take pills every day you can keep the HIV "virus load" verylow and you can probably remain heal…thy. Another answer: In order to answer this, it is important that we understand thedifference between HIV and AIDS. HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is an incurable virus that cancause a life-threatening condition called AIDS (Acquired ImmuneDeficiency Syndrome). There is no immediate prospect of HIVbecoming curable. AIDS is a syndrome (a collection of symptoms /illnesses) caused by the most advanced stages of HIV (HumanImmunodeficiency Virus) infection. AIDS is not an illness as such, but a person is said to havedeveloped AIDS when their immune system is so badly damaged by HIVthat it can no longer fight off a range of defined opportunisticinfections. There is no known cure for HIV; so, although there arecombinations of potent drugs that can help to keep the virus undercontrol, none of them can completely get rid of the infection. Interms of CDC reporting, AIDS is an incurable condition .. BUT inthat context AIDS simply means that a patient is HIV-positive ANDhas at some point either had a CD4 count below 200 per ÂµL of blood,or has suffered from one of twenty or so AIDS-defining illnesses(it certainly does not mean that they are currently ill - and istherefore, in isolation, meaningless in terms of conveying apatient's current condition). With the exception of HIV itself, ALLthe conditions / illnesses that lead to an AIDS diagnosis arepotentially curable .. so whether or not you regard the conditionof AIDS as being curable will very much depend on the exactdefinition you are employing, to what purpose the definition isbeing put and what country you are diagnosed in (the CDC definitionis purely there for reporting purposes and is by no means auniversal definition - indeed, very many countries no longer evenuse the term AIDS). NOTE: Although HIV can be treated, it should be stressed that thedrugs that are used are only fully effective in 80% of patients,are extremely expensive, all have unwelcome side effects, rely on abetter than 95% accuracy in taking the correct doses at the correcttime, are lifestyle limiting and still rely on you adopting acommonsense approach to keeping healthy. The drugs are not a quickfix solution and are not an excuse for complacency. There is no cure as of yet Although there is no known cure for HIV and no vaccine exists,recent advancements in HIV treatment can delay the onset of AIDSand improve longevity. There's a ton of research working on it aswe speak. Also, therapy has improved to the point that you cancontrol the symptoms for a very long time if you assiduously followthe protocol. (MORE)

There is currently only one person who has been cured of HIV; he was cured via an extremely invasive replacement of his bone marrow. This procedure has only a 30% survival rate and is only performed on leukemia patients who are terminally ill, and therefore is not available for the general public. … It is unknown when and if another cure for HIV will be discovered, though many groups are focusing their efforts in this direction.

\nThere is no cure for HIV at the moment, but there is a daily medication that stops it multiplying. You can have small traces of the virus in your bloodstream without any problem. It's only if the virus is allowed to multiply in your blood that it can cause problems.
i believe cure is ther nd thiz people who created the disease still want to meet their target money wise.
The current approach of HIV drug maintenance can keep patients alive, at a cost of $300 - $2,500 PER PATIENT/PER MONTH *INDEFINITELY*(http://aids.about.com/od/hivmedicationfactsheets/a/drugcost.htm). This profits pharmaceutical companies at approaching $10,000,000,000.00 per year (http://www.aids…meds.com/articles/1667_11710.shtml). 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. If a cure comes, it will almost certainly come from the academic community. In fact, a cure might already exist. Answer #2: Most cures work by either attacking bacteria or helping the body's immune system attack viruses. HI Virus attacks the immune system first making a cure difficult. Answer #3: HIV is highly mutatgenic, making it very difficult to create a specific pharmaceutical that is able to "kill" it. -Answer #1 is conspiracy theory dribble. (MORE)
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. (MORE)
Because it is a virus that uses the body's own immune system against it. It is difficult to develop a drug that attacks the virus but leaves the body's immune system intact.
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 p…er 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 Answer 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? Answer 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 ... Answer 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.
Not by UT itself! But, with proper high potency supplementation, diet, exercise, pure water, sleep, sea salt; absolutely!
HIV cannot be cured yet. The reason for this is because the virus keeps changing. For example: Scientists find a cure for it but in 24 hours it will stop working because the Virus has changed
Penicillin is an antibiotic; it fights bacteria. Flu and HIV areviruses, and antibiotics will not help a viral infection. Penicillin is effective against some types of bacteria. It has noaction against viral infections like influenza (the flu) and HIV.
No, there is no cure for HIV, not as of yet. yes there is a cure. i know someone who had it for 20 years. he got bit by a venomous snake called a water moccasin and was in the hospital for 3 weeks. the doctor told him that there was no sign of hiv in his blood and that he could donate it if he wan…ted to. scientists need to be looking into this. HIV doesn't have a cure. But one is in progress with the Dutch leading the way: http://www.unbiasly.com/search#keywords=HIV,Cure A cure is not found yet but they think they have found a solution by removing a certain DNA code from the virus. No, there is no cure for HIV. There is no known cure for HIV but there are treatments availablefor people living with HIV. (MORE)
There are no known cures of HIV known to date. There are manytreatments in hope ot cure HIV developed at the moment.
\nThere is no clinical cure for HIV/Aids yet. Although, some researchers have discovered that very concentrated thyme oil can deactivate the virus in vetro (test tubes).
Once you are diagnosed with HIV, or when HIV enters the bloodstream, there is no known cure in which it eliminates the HIV virus from the bloodstream. Usually when you are diagnosed the doctor will then take a blood test to see how much of the virus is in your body per milimeter of blood and also ho…w many CD4 cells (tcells) are also in your bloodstream. If the tests come back that there are more than 200 tcells per millimeter of blood, the Doctor may not put you on HIV medications since your body can still fight infection on it's own. If your tcells are 200 or below, your body can no longer fight off infection and he or she will then start you on HIV medications. Depending on what strain of the virus you have, the Doctor can start you on numerous different kinds of medication combinations. Don't get confused that the HIV medications DO NOT cure HIV from your bloodstream, all it does is stop HIV from attaching to your tcells, and stops the virus from duplicating and keeping the virus undetectable. This way the virus is no longer attacking your immune system, but the virus is hiding mainly in the lymphnodes, and if you were to stop taking the antiretrovirus medications, the virus would come out of remission and start attacking the body again.

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. Though, at present, there is no cure.
HIV is human immuno virus therefore immune system is the subject of this health problem.

HIV can't be cured because it is a virus, and the only way virus's are destroyed is by the immune system, and because HIV kills the immune systems helper T cells which tell the immune system where there is an infection and that HIV takes over a cell, the virus cannot be stopped with today's medical …technology.

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 strain. Chemicals can't cure AIDS.

cuz its hiv ppl HUMAN IMMUNODEFICIENCY VIRUS SEE IT IS A VIRUS WHICH HAS NO CURE FOR NOW
No. Syphilis is caused by a bacterial infection. Treatments for HIV will have no effect on syphilis. Syphilis can generally be treated with antibiotics. If left untreated, syphilis can damage the heart, aorta, brain, eyes, and bones. In some cases these effects can be fatal.
No. HIV is a virus, we currently do not have the ablility to cure ANY viruses, not just HIV.
There is no cure. Prevention is to avoid all sexual and/or blood contact with any person who has the disease.
No one was cured of HIV. HIV stands for Human Immunodeficiency Virus, and since viruses cannot be rid of from one's body, HIV is incurable. It is treatable however, and a person can live a long and healthy life while still having the virus, although it would take a considerable amount of money.

no they didnt it cant be cured theres no way its like cancer but theres only one thing you could do you could start a treatment for it and youll feel better and if you dont do that you will die
There may never be a cure for some diseases such as HIV. It will be a long time, if ever.
No cure. It's a viral disease, not bacterial, so once you have it, you have it for the rest of your life.
Eating a tokay gecko to cure H I V is a myth. The people of Malyasia and surrounding area believe eating a tokay gecko will cure illnesses and diesease. This is all false. There is also a believe that it can be used as a Aphrodisiac, this assumption is also false.
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 p…reviously 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 is no current "cure" for the HIV Virus, the virus which can cause AIDS and other ailments. Antiviral medications have advanced to the point where they can reduce the numbers of active virus detectable in the blood (viral load) to near zero, however, the person is not cured. The virus is sti…ll present in the person's body, and if the drugs were to be stopped, it would again replicate to larger numbers where it could harm the body and be more easily transmitted. A cure would inactivate or kill the virus completely, and that is not happening in this case unfortunately; not yet anyway. (MORE)
No. Having other stds doesn't cure HIV. HIV and herpes can be treated but not cured.
HIV has been incurable because the antiviral therapies used totreat these viral infections only target replicating viruses. Ininfected patients, some cells have HIV viral genomes latentlypresent, which are not targeted by therapies currently used. . Patients suffering from HIV who undergo HAART the…rapy(combination of drugs that treats HIV) can stop actual HIV virusfrom replicating. However, sometimes, HIV can enter a cell,integrate its genome into the chromosome, but do nothing. To theimmune system and drugs, the cell looks completely normal, so drugscannot target the HIV present in this state. However, the cell canat a later date produce virus. This phenomena when HIV lays dormant is very advantageous for it toremain in the body.
