HIV Cure Needs More Commitment and Money


      

Tucker, GA, June 04, 2011 -- For 3 decades now HIV has created jitters everywhere. The number of HIV cases is on a rise across the world and inspite of the technological advancements we made in the field, we couldn't get a cure for it. Another saddening thing is that the medical treatment for HIV victims is very costly and the price figures are astronomical. Since most people cannot afford the treatment, they usually succumb to death after fighting for many years. To help all such people, there is a need for a group that strives towards HIV cure. This call is for all those scientists who are passionate about working on the virus and its cure.

Though there are many scientists working towards finding a cure for HIV, nobody was successful. Antiviral therapy is required for people to fight against this deadly disease and a HIV prophylactic vaccine too is necessary. The “International Workshop on HIV reservoirs and Eradication Strategies” has been formed in 2003 only to find a solution to the issue of HIV persistence. Because not only current treatments for HIV are very costly, but they are unable to get rid of HIV and must be administered life long. This implies problems of compliance, resistance and toxicity. The aim of this workshop is to develop novel strategies tackling HIV reservoirs and control them without the need of continued antiretroviral therapy.

Chief of Department of Infectious Diseases, General Hospital, France, Dr Alain Lafeuillade is the chairperson of this workshop and he is very passionate about what he is doing. ‘A group of medical experts from various medical streams need to come together under one roof and form a powerful task force that works towards finding a cure for HIV. We are conducting workshops in many countries to bring an awareness on this’ is what Dr Lafeuillade says.

Experts from the fields of virology, immunology, drug development and clinical research are required to form this special task force.

Interested people can get in touch with Dr Alain Lafeuillade, Department of Infectious Diseases, General Hospital, 1208 Avenue Colonel Picot, 83056 Toulon, France.
