I was just gonna post this in the HIV thread but couldn't find it as I know people are tired of hearing about new research on this topic without much progress.

 

 

Quote

[...] In that study, up to 25% of the previously dormant cells died within 24 hours of activation. However, researchers concluded they needed a more effective way to kill the cells, so in this study they used the same synthetic compound to flush HIV infected cells out of hiding and then inject healthy natural killer cells into the mice's bloodstreams to kill the infected cells. The new method cleared HIV in 40% of the HIV-infected mice, and the researchers couldn't detect the virus in the mice's spleens, which suggests that cells harboring HIV were eliminated.

 

“We will also be moving this research toward pre-clinical studies in non-human primates with the ultimate goal of advancing implementing this research to use in humans,” Kim said. [...] Source above

I think hiv could be curable by 2035

 

What i hate is that its never had the amount of urgency as covid. Even cancer should be curable by now

If HIV affected the gp like covid does, we would've had a vaccine/cure by the mid 80s.

This RNA technology that the Pfizer vaccine uses is new right?

Is there a way this technology can be used to help more diseases like HIV for example?

Yes! They’re testing a hiv vaccine on humans currently using it

Can they use mRNA to extend our life span?

HAART is already very close to a cure. The focus should be on a vaccine (which also has better financial prospects for big pharma)
