Wow... Let's hope it works!!!
Let's not start adding politics in to this. kthxbye. Love, Kickback.
Interesting indeed, though I'm apprehensive about what happens if it does work. Nobody goes around handing out drugs, life-saving or otherwise, for free.
Well then this as good a place as any to rectify that little whoopsie, isn't it?
yeah, but if its true the governments will just make some new diseaase to control population growth...but still, i hope it is
The idea of a Land Tumor just popped into my head after reading this.
What the heck is this? First an article about Bill Nye getting married, and now a possible AIDS cure? What has happened to the HR I admired?
Having seen a friend live with, and die from AIDS first hand, I can only hope that this possible cure comes to full fruition. To think of all the pain and misery that could be spared for millions of people around the world, that's something worth cheering for.
Now we can just hope that the pharmaceutical company, and the worlds wealthy governments can work to get such a drug to the african and other third world countries that are being ravaged by the disease WITHOUT charging for it.
First of all if a cure to HIV/AIDS is found I hope governments like US won't use it for political means and richest countries will pool their resources together to bring the cost down so third world countries from Africa can afford them. Second of all if they did find the cure they deserve Nobel's Prize for sure. What an accomplishment that will be.
I expect AIDS to be witchunted like smallpox if anyone ever develops a cure or vaccine for it and there will be no shortage of rich people wanting to look good if the cost is an issue.
Sounds like quite the acheivment, and the potential for a one "shot" cure.
*hands out Tinfoil hat*
If this is in fact a cure to finally rid us of this epidemic once and for all, then I can only say one thing... W t! Brigham Young University does it again.
Wouldn't bet on it.
Sadly, you're right.
Of course, no drug gets created, life saving or otherwise, for free. Lack of profit drove many companies out of the vaccine business, and look where that's gotten us.
In the case of an HIV cure, I think there will be huge benefits to the developers simply on the PR front. The company or university that creates it would surely get a lot more attention and likely a great deal of new investment which could help ameliorate the costs of development.
It is also important to remember that even were this drug to work, it would likely take years to test and retest, and then a long time to mass manufacture.
That's too awesome. Hope they kick AIDS's ass!
Also hope some NEW deadly mysterious disease does'nt come afterwards
and replace it. All that plague bs sucks.
