HIV Prevention Shot Finally Arrived

Mar 5 2014, 8:49am CST | by , in News | Other Stuff

An HIV prevention shot may just have finally arrived for the salvation of those infected with the AIDS virus. But the only problem is that it works in the case of monkeys and is yet to be tested in human beings.

HIV Prevention Shot Finally Arrived

It looks like an AIDS cure may be here at last. The matter got discussed at an AIDS conference recently. An experiment with a group of monkeys showed that when they were given the injections containing the serum, they remained safe from the ravages of the devastating illness. 

But those simians that were not inoculated contracted the symptoms and died soon. The (HIV prevention) shots were to be taken once every three months. It is a much better alternative than popping pills into your mouth. 

Already there is a tablet in the market by the name of Truvada that largely prevents the disease from spreading further in the infected individual. 

The monkeys that were tested with the serum were macaques. They were divided into two groups. One was given the (HIV prevention) shots while the other was the control group. And the results were pretty obvious. The shots worked remarkably well and with 100% pinpointed accuracy. 

Several other studies showed that the injections really did provide a lot of protection against the immune system-damaging malady. It indeed looks like the days of the AIDS pill (HIV prevention pills) are over since a very potent vaccination has been formed in the laboratory. 

The pandemic of AIDS began in the eighties and spread first among the homosexual population and later on in many heterosexuals too. It caused much misery and provoked fear that reached the level of a moral panic. Since the ailment meant the sufferer would die eventually it was a very depressing scenario it created in the United States and the rest of the world. 

But today the HIV disease is not as prevalent as it used to be and besides many drugs have been found that lessen the symptoms. Now with this latest exciting research, the time may have dawned when this dreadful malady will itself die a natural death at the hands of man.
