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.

Two teenage girls go missing as they fly from Austria to fight in Syria
Two teenager girls who say they have left Austria to fight in Syria have trigged an international search operation from the Austrian police. The two - a 15-year-old and a 16-year-old - left identical letters behind telling their families goodbye and that "we will meet in in Paradise". The letters told of their plans to go to Syria to "fight for Islam". The parents of the girls reported that their children had gone missing last week and since then the police tracked them to Turkish city of Adana, where they had flown to from Austria - after that the police lost track of the girls. Adana is 75 miles northwest of Aleppo, a city that became a major battleground during the civil war taking place in Syria. Police spokesman Thomas Keiblinger say that the police are taking the farewell letters "very seriously" and are now conducting an international search for two teenage girls who left farewell letters announcing plans to "fight for Islam" in Syria. Both girls come from families who immigrated from Bosnia but have not been fully identified by Austrian police.
