Important Discovery In Fight Against AIDS

Scientists believe that they have found a weakness in the AIDS virus. This weakness might be the break needed to develop a vaccine against the virus.

(Reuters) U.S. National Institutes of Health researcher Peter Kwong said the study, published in the journal Nature, may reveal HIV's long-sought "site of vulnerability" that can be targeted with a vaccine aimed at preventing initial infection.

"It doesn't say we've gotten there. But it's taken it off the list from an impossible dream and converted it to something that is a (mere) technical barrier."
Let's hope so because 25 million people have already been killed from the AIDS virus and 40 million more are living with it.
