Researchers are positive about new potential hiv vaccine
Researchers from the Desmond Tutu hiv centre in South Africa are optimistic about the opportunities in the future to develop a vaccine against hiv and aids. A new medicijncombinatie makes that possibility more realistic.
Scientists at the South African centre report Monday that the possibilities for hiv and aids prevent and cure closer, it seems that they are a combination of medications and vaccinations have been found, making regular medication in the future may no longer be necessary for patients.
“New products will continue to be necessary. The danger in this virus is that it constantly adapts, allowing existing drugs eventually stop working,” said Lisa Gail-Bekker, principal investigator, in a comment.
During a conference in Paris presented by the researchers present their findings to the public, in which a drug is presented which makes patients every four to eight weeks, an injection should be done instead of daily medication.
