Promising Vaccine to Cure AIDS Being Tested in Brazil

One of the most promising world researches for the development of an AIDS vaccine is taking place at the Federal University of Pernambuco (UFPE), in partnership with the University of Paris 5.

In the first phase, entirely developed in Recife, the capital of the Northeastern Brazilian state of Pernambuco, 18 patients who carried the virus were submitted to three doses of the experimental vaccine. Just one day after immunization, the viral load in these volunteers had dropped on average 80%.


In eight of them, the reduction was as high as 90%. Within two months a group of 40 patients is going to receive a stronger dosage, and a new phase of the history against the Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome may start being written.


Made from an inactive HIV virus, the immunizer also uses dendrites from the patient himself. These cells are in charge of showing the body’s defense cells which are the invaders.


The Aids virus normally manages to kill them before they do their job. The objective of this vaccine is to halt this.


It is not, however, a vaccine to avoid contamination by the HIV virus. The objective of the medication is therapeutic, i.e., for the treatment of patients who are already HIV positive.


“Our expectation, in phase two, is to come close to 100% reduction,” stated infectologist Luiz Cláudio Arraes, a professor at the Tropical Medicine Department of the UFPE, during an interview to the Trade Newspaper.


Despite the researcher’s optimism, the arrival of this medication on the market may still take 10 years.


The research being developed in Brazil is the first in the world to present such significant results. India and China also started testing a vaccine, but the success of this research cannot yet be measured.


Other initiatives, however, also showed great interest. At the end of last year, Israeli researchers from the Hadasa University Hospital in Jerusalem and from the Weizman Science Institute developed a medication to strengthen the immune system. The drug proposes to reduce the cracks that are used by so called “opportunist diseases”.


Aids is considered the infectious contagious disease that most kills in the world. The estimate is that in 2004 40 million people were infected by the HIV virus.


In Brazil, between 1980 and 2002, a total of 257,000 cases were registered. In other times, different diseases frightened humanity.


In the 1950’s, for example, 50 million people were infected with cowpox. Today, the disease is considered eradicated worldwide.

    How i was cured by HIV
    Hello everybody, I just want give this great testimony to the whole public about a great man who help me out in serious
    illness. I have HIV AID for good 2years now and I was almost going to the end of my life due to the illness. All I have in my mind is,
    let me just give up because life is not interesting for me any longer and i also pray that God should accept my
    soul when ever I’m gone luckily for me, my kid sister run to me that she found a doctor in the internet who can cure HIV AIDS. She helped me out in
    everything, the man asked for my picture so he can cast a spell
    on me from his temple. After all he asked has been done, 45minutes later I started getting more stronger, my blood started flowing in my vain like it use to. For 4 to 5 days I started adding Weight and before a month my body started developing, my skin start coming up, after 2 months I went for HIV test and I was tested negative, I’m so happy that I can say I’m not an HIV patient anymore. If you

    i have a suggestion , it might sound stu
    this is what i have in mind, HIV virus is something that cant be kill but i think it can be destroy. recently i went through some of the snake poison and i found that there is a kind of toxic known as cytotoxin that able to destroy living cell;what if the scientist are able to wrap up this small amount of poison and include in a genetic modified virus and carry it to the infected T cells because i think think that genetic modified virus should serve the pursose of locating the infected T cell and newly reproduced HIV and the cytoxin poison will serve the function in destroying all the infected T cell.besides that, the enzyme in the snake poison can be useful in breaking the new DNA strand that the HIV inserted into the healthy
    T cell. The last step is to supply antivenom in the body to neutralize the active cyotoxin in the human body.
    this is my e-mail i’m hoping to get some comments from everyone thank you.
