Scientists Discover Potential AIDS Cure

Australian researchers have discovered a potential cure for HIV/AIDS. According to Dr David Harrich with the Queensland Institute of Medical Research, he and his team have discovered a technique that alters the proteins that enable the HIV virus to replicate throughout the body. The technique prevents the virus from crippling the immune system by manipulating its genetic structure and turning HIV into a weapon against itself. The cure is a long way from becoming available to those afflicted with HIV/AIDS. Dr Harrich and his team will begin testing on mice in 2013; human trials would occur in the next 10 years.
