It'd be great if it works. I wouldn't get my hopes up, but equally I wouldn't dismiss it.

damn, you'd think THIS would have made it to the mainstream news...

Haven't they found something in orange peel and other fruit skins that can possibly cure some forms of cancer? Don't you think with the millions of plants and food available out there, there's a cure for everything that's waiting to be discovered?

no.
because THEN Alot of people would lose money.
Because america is greedy.
The "organizations" that take your money so they can "research"
the cure for aids/hiv would lose that money they usually recieve.
who knows.
I wouldnt get my hopes up though.

Now you just need an enzyme to stop pregnancy.

And this cure may look great, but think about it. Pharmaceutical companies are going to jump on it and put a 1200% markup on it like they do with everything else.

also some hungry company will patent it and hence the people who need it most, basically millions of africans, won't be able to afford it and will die anyway.

Clinton administration removed patents on AIDs drugs for companies, government is more determined to rid the problem of AIDs than to make money- American lives are at stake if africa doesn't get the problem fixed. If it was 'just' an enzyme (I didn't read the articles), then it would be very inexpensive to mass produce.

At any rate, indian companies can produce generic (working) AIDs drugs at about 150 bucks a person for a year. GSK is an incredibly greedy company, did a debate on AIDs drugs and patents a while ago. Just do a little googling and you'll see how they play.

Wouldn't expect somethign as simple as an enzyme to kill a virus which can mutate.


enzymes aren't that simple, lol.

Enzymes are involved in some of the most complex chemical processes in nature. Also, enzymes have been used for years to cleave and recombine DNA, which is basically what this does. It's just a case of determining the codons that code for the malignant part of the HIV virus and programming the enzyme to target them.

If we knew this 'maglignant part' I don't think finding the sequence of the enzyme would be that much of a problem, but anyway, I just didn't expect something like a single enzyme to take out a virus of this nature. Most aids cures or drugs nowdays are focused on preventing ways in which the virus attacks, such as the receptors on the cells (which is why some people are immune to aids, as they lack the receptors on the cells to allow the virus to work).

different story, different product.


Yeah, the product the TS posted, the story came out a week ago.

The other product was halted after 13 months of trial, and the news just came out today.

The first product was tested on human genome in a lab situation.

The second product was tested on animals then released to regular people.

I'm sure they're different

1st, theyr both in india, and the suggestes aids cure looked very promising.
the article saying that it failed was also talking about the most promising aids cure, that failed. in india.

hmmm that enzyme is a "Pepsine-Like Enzyme"
i just searched the keywords "enzyme" and "molecule" in google images, tons of these.

That's a hell of a big pepsin-like enzyme... considering that pepsin is a digestive enzyme, with forty-odd amino acids in it's structure.

Even if a cure is found, it will not be mass marketed. There is just too much money being made from AID's patients right now. If they are all cured, then there is no more money coming in. Someone with AID's needs to constantly pay out the nose for their treatment, whereas a cure can be done in a few sessions.

Sounds cruel, but it's true. Doctors have already found cures for cancer and diabetes but it's just too much of a money loss.
