    This is fantastic news!

    The majority of people infected with HIV, if left untreated, may not progress to AIDS for 10-15 years or longer, according to the U.N.

    The U.N. is incorrect (and always mistrust a statement made by an organisation, because it means that there's no qualified professional who's prepared to put their name to that statement). In sub-Saharan Africa, where the majority of HIV positive individuals live, the average time from HIV infection to AIDs and death is 8 to 10 years. The reason for this is poor nutrtition, secondary infections such as tuberculosis (including multi-drug resistant TB), poor access to clean water and other complicating factors such as the impossibly high cost of medications for the average HIV positive individual. Children who are infected with HIV during delivery rarely live past 12 years of age in sub-Saharan Africa.

    By contrast HIV positive individuals in developed countries can live out their natural life-spans. These individuals though are far from "the majority" of HIV positive individuals, and are definitely not representative of the "average" HIV positive individual.

    If this works and hits the market, it will be a financial disaster for all the drug companies selling treatment, not cures, for aids I predict this will never be marketed.
