A cure for AIDS?

Because we already have a cure for AIDS, and it is in just about everyhome and business across America.

They also have not researched enoguh, obvious from the 'optimism' in the article. I suppose they have yet to test it ona human patient?

It is not a cure. It is a possible cure, which is still very uplifting.

Hopefully this team of researchers does not take the millions that the major pharmaceutical companies will offer them for not producing the "cure". You must realize how much bank the pharma companies make off so called "Drug cocktails" that are used on AIDS patients.

On a second note, the reaserchers might just have a "freak accident" and all their research will dissapear.

Lol, what are you talking about?

Because AIDS is not important for the state run propaganda machine at this time.

Check back when they have worn out the terrorist card, and the population is no longer living in fear of it.

From www.csa54.info...



CSA54 is the newly-discovered Caragenin compound which has been proven to destroy various strains of the HIV virus that causes AIDS. The compound was invented by Dr. Paul Savage of Brigham Young University, and independently proven effective by Dr. Derya Unutmaz of Vanderbilt University. CSA54 has been licensed to Ceragenix Pharmaceuticals of Denver. It is expected to take three to seven years before CSA54 is readily available.


Seems very promising...

I think because they haven't even published their work yet, let alone tested it on a animal. It will be years (if it doesn't turn out to be a dead end) before they even test it on humans.

Wouldn't it be safe to say there are at least some 'test' subjects who are going to die anyway from AIDS to test this 'proposed cure' out? It would be proposterous not to think so, unless the government is stopping it from happening perhaps.

House hold Bleach will kill the HIV-1 virus, maybe not AIDS upon further review.

Please explain why it shoudl be 'blowing up in the news'?
Its yet another possible aids treatment/cure/medecine. It needs to go into testing and trials. Even if it works, it could take years to 'get to market'.


www.sltrib.com...
Assuming continued positive results, CSA-54 could be available in three to seven years.
[emph added]

There's a heck of lot more that has to happen before anyone should get their hopes up. And even then the company has to actually decide to go ahead and have mass testing of it, probably in africa, but that in itself brings in a whole host of problems. Then they have to decide to manufacture it, which they might not, if its not a cure all, because who knows what the legal rammifications could be if it causes other serious side effects or isn't as effective as they think it is. Moreso, if it proves to be stupendously effective in the initial stages of the trials in africa, then they'll want to say its sure-fire, stop the tests, and put it into production. But who knows what legal restrictions there will be on that sort of action, since the people getting it free through the trials won't be getting it anymore. Not to mention all the bad press that any company that actually successfully develops an aids cure is going to get for all the ethical problems and hang=ups that go along with pharmacological research.
And then, after all that, if they actually have a spot-on AIDs cure, there isn't a country in the third world that wouldn't take it, ignore the copyright and patents, and distribute it cheaply to their own people. So any company that develops an AIDS cure might actually seal their own doom.

Is there something I'm not getting??

From your responses I am confused. Why would people keep the cure for aids a secret just so AIDS patients buy more pills. I would like to think that not everyone in the pharmaceutical companies are that evil to hide the cure for aids just to make more money.

Why wouldn't they rush the hell for publication and production of their pills? As far as I know, or think, finding a cure for AIDS is a multi-million dollar research field, right? So why stop people who find a cure? To me saving lifes is more than making a few more dollars on your paycheck.

exactly, i don't understand



nazgarn, why would it take multiple years to test on a human? If i had AIDS i'd volunteer and sign waivers, etc... shouldn't there be a little rush to it?

Why is this not blowing up the news?


There are two quick answers.

1. This treatment is unproven.

2. HIV is a rapid evolving virus.


Assuming continued positive test results in animal and eventual human trials, Porter estimates it could be three to seven years before the compound is available by prescription. That transition could be accelerated, however, if the Food and Drug Administration should decide to fast-track the drug.

That day is still a long way off, though. First, researchers plan to publish their results in scientific journals, seeking peer review and independent confirmation of their findings. Assuming no flaws are found, several rounds of testing would follow.

Most of the nation's leading AIDS experts were attending the Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections in Denver on Monday. The event's policies prohibits on-site news conferences or releases during the conference, and efforts to reach scientists there were not successful. Of the few AIDS research luminaries reached, all said they preferred not to comment on the Vanderbilt tests until full results are published.

Why would anyone not want a cure?

No money in a cure, especially a cure-all. If this compound is as effective as they say it is then the pharms would lose billions a day. Never cure a person, just keep them healthy enough to come back.

Too bad it kills the patient, too.

Air will kill HIV as well. So all one has to do is expose alllll their blood to air...

Well I'll stick this cure on my shelf - right beside the generic cancer cure and my good ole portable coldfusion generator...

It's all a load of crock if you ask me - what better way to wheedle some research funds than do a bit of bragging here and there... anyway even if there was some substance I am sure some pharmacy spooks would give them a visit (and a lot of money) for the recipe and then sit on it for a few hundred years. Good money in aids meds - no need for a cure, prescription is better...

Are you serious? Do you have a heart? I will stay quiet and just say now for the future say "oops" after something of this nature hits you personally. The good news is, when you are deeply saddened, you can think of the multi-million dollar companies that just went up .02 in the stock market.

Why can't AIDS blood be replaced by healthy blood?
Something like the kidney dialysis machine does?

I had a friend that died from Aids.
He had a dream one night that he told me about.
He said that he dreamed that pine cones would cure AIDS.
He's gone now , but I have always wondered if there has ever been any research done with pine cones for this disease.

I apologize if I have offended you but I was just stating the mindframe of the pharms and their shareholders. And yes I lived with a person who had AIDS not HIV for 2 years until they died when I was younger. I have seen what the disease does firsthand and it is terrible. I wouldn't wish that on anyone!!!!
I only hope and pray that this is not a hoax or it doesn't get shelved by the pharms just for profit. I worry that as soon as a cure is found, we will be introduced into something far worse.....

Another reason why they woulnd't tell us about a cure is that everyone would be jumping in bed with everyone. Prostitution would most likely stop worldwide and affect organized crime/Goverment money.
