‘Cure’ research suggests new paths to HIV control

• The Raw Story.com
 Three studies presented Thursday at a major world conference on AIDS show new ways that scientists are striving toward a cure for the three-decade-old disease.

One study focused on a group of 12 patients in France who began treatment on antiretroviral drugs within 10 weeks of becoming infected with human immunodeficiency virus, but then stopped the therapy.

The HIV virus stayed away for a median of six years in the group, known as the Visconti Cohort, which stands for “Virological and Immunological Studies in CONtrollers after Treatment Interruption.”

This unique group of people did not completely eliminate HIV, but continued to possess it at an extremely low level in their cells and did not become sick.
