HIV Eradication: One Step Closer
Hopes for HIV eradication have been stymied by the current crop of antiretroviral drugs’ inability to get at the reservoir of inactive HIV-infected CD4 cells that hide in the body. Now, Robert Siliciano, MD, PhD, from Johns Hopkins University says not only that it’s possible to get at these cells, but that his lab is already on track to identifying drugs that can wake up these cells. The discovery represents a significant step on the path to ultimately curing HIV.

Hydeia Broadbent: Born an AIDS Activist
She was born HIV positive in 1984. At age 3, doctors diagnosed her with AIDS. But at 13, Hydeia Broadbent debuted as a POZ magazine cover girl. She’d defied the prognosis that she would not live past age 5. A gifted public speaker, she once told her father that her purpose was to let people know what AIDS does to people. As a child, she did just that at the 1996 Republican Convention when she spoke there, and she’s continued to enlighten others.
