New hope against HIV/AIDS

A silver bullet to defeat HIV/AIDS still doesn’t exist, but the world is getting closer.

An international study released this week found that transmission of the virus can be nearly eliminated if patients are simply given drug therapy as early as possible.

The results are the first to prove what HIV/AIDS experts already suspected – that immediate treatment offers major health benefits. They also back San Francisco public health officials’ much-debated recommendation from last year that people should be treated as soon as possible after their diagnosis. — SFGate
