HIV Cure Breakthrough

A ground-breaking anti HIV vaccine has the ability to turn off and isolate the virus that leads to Aids, say medical researchers in Italy.

Human trials with the vaccine show it has not only halted progress of the infection, but kick-started human immune systems allowing them to begin to recover.

"We have seen the vaccine reach parts where drugs cannot go," said lead researcher Barabara Ensoli of the Higher Health Institute of the results, published in the Plos One medical journal.

The vaccine turns off cells infected by HIV making it impossible for them to reproduce and stopping the progress of the virus through the host's body.

Now researchers are calling for more funds to turn the experiments into a commercial treatment of the killer disease.
