VIDEO: ‘Cure’ no longer a ‘four-letter word’ in AIDS research

VIDEO: ‘Cure’ no longer a ‘four-letter word’ in AIDS research
June 30, 2015

Joseph Eron, MD, professor of medicine at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine, discusses the highlights of recent developments of researchers to develop a cure for HIV. According to Eron, successes like the Berlin patient and the Mississippi baby are positive yet small stepping stones to success on the long road to HIV eradication.

Eron characterizes the nature of HIV as a ‘mischievous virus’ that hides, and says that the role of researchers in these cure studies, which include the development of an HIV vaccine to clear the virus among other methods, is to coax the virus into showing itself so that researchers can figure out how clear the cells from the system.
