The results of a recent HIV treatment trial run by several British institutions are promising, and may mean the discovery of a cure for HIV.
Fifty patients took part in the trial, conducted by Imperial College London, University College London, King’s College London and the universities of Oxford and Cambridge. The NHS also supported the research.
In one patient there no sign of the virus after a months long trial. The man, aged 44 and a social worker in London, told the Times: ‘It would be great if a cure has happened. My last blood test was a couple of weeks ago and there is no detectable virus.’
