Dear Vance,teak,howardh,nursegirl and all the experts of the forum

few days ago i was having a normal discussion over the HIV topic with few of the medical representatives and they were saying that now a days medical science is so advance that a cure for hiv and AIDS is there but medicine giants are not issuing it out just because a huge amount of money they have invested in treatment of HIV and AIDS so they are restricted to reveal it for the public interest whereas few were saying that cure of the same is under trial and researchers have yet to find out the cure for the same.

There is no cure but there is some good news concerning a HIV vaccine from the States.

Basically, while still at research level, this has been tested on monkeys and could lead to a 8 month HIV resistance vaccine.

Look up the BBC science website for more information.

Let's keep our finger's crossed.

My personal opinion, in about 5 years, there will be a cure! And about Pharma, if HIV didn't exist, they'd still make money from other diseases, think about it, you have all diseases from A to Z plus Cancer and erectile dysfunction, these guys will always have something to do.

One question which always comes to my mind is that as per the experts comment here in this forum that hiv virus dies as soon as it comes out of host body then how come uses of syrienge Leeds to hiv transmission as the virus is suppose to be dead as soon as it comes out of hosts body.

"HIV may survive for up to four weeks in syringes after HIV-infected blood has been drawn up into the syringe and then flushed out.3 A study of blood gathered from more than 800 syringes filled with small amounts of HIV-infected blood and stored for various periods found that HIV could be isolated from 10% of syringes after eleven days where the quantity of blood was less than 2µl, but 53% of syringes where the quantity of blood was 20µl. Longer survival of HIV was also associated with lower storage temperature (less than 4°C); at higher temperatures (27 to 37°C) survival was not detected beyond seven days."
