Breast milk may hold the cure to stopping HIV/AIDS

quote:

Antibodies that help to stop the HIV virus have been found in breast milk. Researchers at Duke University Medical Center isolated the antibodies from immune cells called B cells in the breast milk of infected mothers in Malawi, and showed that the B cells in breast milk can generate neutralizing antibodies that may inhibit the virus that causes AIDS.

HIV-1 can be transmitted from mother to child via breastfeeding, posing a challenge for safe infant feeding practices in areas of high HIV-1 prevalence. But only one in 10 HIV-infected nursing mothers is known to pass the virus to their infants.

"That is remarkable, because nursing children are exposed multiple times each day during their first year of life," said senior author Sallie Permar, M.D., Ph.D., an assistant professor of pediatrics and infectious diseases at Duke. "We are asking if there is an immune response that protects 90 percent of infants, and could we harness that response to develop immune system prophylaxis (protection) during breastfeeding for mothers infected with HIV-1.

"Our work helped establish that these B cells in breast milk can produce HIV-neutralizing antibodies, so enhancing the response or getting more mucosal B-cells to produce those helpful antibodies would be useful, and this is a possible route to explore for HIV-1 vaccine development," Permar said.

If this is true, I would be convinced there is in fact, most certainly a god.

You do know if we get a cure to HIV, then we'll likely be well on our way of curing pretty much every illness known to man. Unlike many illnesses, we've got some leads on what can cure HIV. We have successfully cured HIV before with bone marrow transplants, and its just a matter of time before we find out what is so special in certain people's bone marrow that makes it impossible to get Da Aids. Due to it being a worldwide catastrophe, its a good virus to start on.

i'll tell you how to cure AIDS ... In fact AIDS is still the most CUREABLE disease of our time but we continue to waste millions of dollars on research.

Unlike many other deadly diseases, the cure for AIDS is known. We know exactly how it is transmitted. We know exactly who is the most at risk. We know exactly how to prevent it. The spread of HIV/AIDS is almost wholly the result of reckless behavior. I am not trying to be insensitive to the people that have found themselves with the AIDS. People find themselves with all sorts of problems due to bad choices, it is not nice to kick them when they are down. But it only perpetuates the problem if society continues to condone the behavior that causes AIDS.

If you are stupid enough to engage in a deadly behavior, you should be responsible for the outcome. Maybe we should just put everyone that continues to engage in this behavior on an island and let them continue to infect each other until they die off. The rest of us sane people will be better off. Isn't that what we used to do with deadly diseases?

Is the HIV virus what you catch when you enter the wrong PIN number at the ATM machine?
