Maybe grabbing at straws but recently came across on YOUTUBE a video proclaiming that BEE VENOM kills the AIDS virus while leaving the normal cells unaffected ... has anyone looked into this claim?

hello. my name is Minerva. I was first diagnosed with HIV in 12/2005. I had 48,ooo copies. my CD4 was 179. I started on my treatment immediatedly. within 6 months I was undetectable. I took my meds faithfully for 5 years. of course my throat needed a break so I decided to stop for a while. im still undetectable. I have less than 20 copies in my body. I ALWAYS said I was a fighter and I wasn't gonna let this beat me. im still fighting strong and this disease is NOT gonna beat me. im living proof

Well they seems to have been officially cured This brings the number functionally/cured of HIV to 16. It seems to be the same theory as the baby - early treatment. While it is great news it unfortunately its of little benefit to most people with HIV We need another Berlin patient A regular patient who we can cure and be an inspiration to the rest of us. I believe we willget him or her (prob him) in the next two years all though I hope sooner

According to the associated publication i find on pubmed, it was only 5 of 32 patients (16%) who started therapy "early" (the mean was within 2 weeks from primary HIV infection, but ranged from 2-9 weeks). Duration of tx was ~5yrs. the study did start in the 90s, was in france, etc. may not become a standard of care but will likely guide therapy in the future. it is good news, but guarded as ever...

andy My money and hope is on cord blood. Although treating 34million people that way is impossible. If proven to work it will speed up gene tests.We may now before the end of the year
