AIDS cure in a few years a real possibility

Cayman News Service(CNS): Scientists in the US believe that HIV and AIDS can be cured using genetic editing technology, a breakthrough that could become a reality in just a few years. Researchers at Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University are confident that within three years they will be able to begin clinical trials on humans. Current treatments cannot cure HIV and can only try to stop the HIV virus from spreading within the body.

    Oh hell. No plague and pestilence to eliminate fornicators and LBGT? Back to the drawing board Cayman. We will probably have to legalise gay marriage now. Oh well back to Jamaican and expat bashing, always a winner! Happy days!

    Out with the AIDS and in the the Zika. Zika is the new orange or is it “orange is the new black”?

    A lot of research scientists specializing in HIV/AIDS won’t be happy to hear this, because once there is a cure there will be no more funding for their research, leading to joblessness.

    That’s how the research industry works, and in many cases it’s why medicines only ease the pain and make living bearable, rather than outright cure the problem.

      Well those that don’t “believe” in evolution will certainly not entertain the notion of genetically altered cells.

    There’s a very old saying, “Prevention is better than cure.” If people don’t get that message they get what they deserve.

      I guess you think all those people who contracted AIDS as a result of transfusion of contaminated blood products should have become Jehovah’s Witnesses before agreeing to the procedures?

    God will just find another way to punish fornicators. Seasickness perhaps.

    Patiently awaiting the “genetic editing experts” here at CNS Comments Section to chime in on how this is a terrible idea.
