Danish scientists say they are expecting new results that have left them "on the brink" of “finding a mass distributable and affordable cure to HIV."
Not just to keep it at bay, but to cure it for good.
Clinical trials are testing a “novel strategy” in which the HIV virus is stripped from DNA and destroyed permanently by the immune system.
The move would represent a dramatic step forward in the attempt to find a cure for the virus, which causes AIDS, which has killed millions worldwide.
Scientists are currently conducting human trials on their treatment, in the hope of proving that it is effective. It has already been found to work in lab tests.
