Researchers could come up with a complete cure for potential HIV within the year 2030

 

HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) causes AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome) and this syndrome interferes with the immune system of our body. Slowly, our body’s ability to fight against infections will be suppressed. 

 

Everybody knows that HIV is deadly.

Even though the number of people getting AIDS declined massively throughout the years, it still exists and threatens the life of many.

According to World Health Organization, 680 000 people died from HIV and AIDS-related causes in 2020, and over 150,000 people got infected.

 

There’s no complete cure available for HIV/AIDS yet.

Your body can’t get rid of it once you have the infection.  

However, there are many medications that can control HIV and prevent complications. 

 

But maybe we are heading towards ending this war between HIV and humans soon.

GSK (GlaxoSmithKline) is working very efficiently to defeat the deadly HIV.

“Our ultimate goal is always a cure of HIV,” said Kimberly Smith, head of research and development at Glaxo’s HIV arm.

 

GlaxoSmithKline, a British pharmaceutical company will start the research and human trials of its potential HIV cure by the year 2022. 

GSK’s goal is to achieve the successful production of the cure for deadly HIV by 2030.

 

Glaxo is a trailblazer in the field of HIV cure development.

They previously developed an injectable HIV treatment drug called Cabotegravir.

The drug must be taken once every two months. That’s six injections a year.

 

Now, GSK is making a partnership relation with Shionogi, a Japan-based pharmaceutical company, and with Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen to make the next level of drugs.

 

Shionogi and GSK are now planning to upgrade previous treatment methods by extending the time gap between periodic injections.

Currently, the treatment is done by suppressing the replicating property of the virus in the human body. 

Gradually, the immune system of the patient’s body will regain the capacity to fight against viral fevers and cancers.

 

But still, need further development. 

Now GSK is planning for a much powerful cure that will completely deactivate HIV in the human body.

 

As we can see we are heading towards a much better future filled with scientific development and technological acceleration.

Hope researchers will find a total solution for HIV much sooner than expected.
