On this date thirty years ago, Health and Human Services Secretary Margaret Heckler announced the discovery of HIV as the cause for the AIDS virus. Since then, the treatment of HIV/AIDS has revolutionized medicine worldwide.
Scientists seeking a cure for AIDS say they have been inspired, not crushed, by a major setback in which two HIV positive patients believed to have been cured found the virus re-invading their bodies once more.
Scientists may have just identified a potential drug to block AIDS. They've found the precise chain of molecular events in the human body that drives the death of most of the immune system's CD4 T cells as an HIV infection leads to AIDS.
Scientists and clinicians from five leading UK universities will begin a groundbreaking clinical trial next year to test a possible cure for HIV infection.
Do our genes hold the key to future AIDS therapies? Using a supercomputer, scientists analyzed the genomes of thousands of strains of the HIV virus and have produced the first map of human AIDS resistance.
A team of international scientists have uncovered a major breakthrough in the path toward developing a human AIDS vaccine. The researchers have opened door to HIV treatment suggesting, Cats may be the key to developing the vaccine successfully.
A recent research conducted by the UCLA found that cocaine users are more prone to HIV. There are very few researches regarding how drugs affect body's immunity.

Adult movie stars Cameron Bay and her boyfriend Rod Daily, who recently tested positive for HIV, emphasized the need for regular condom usage in the porn industry.The two were speaking at a press conference Wednesday, in Hollywood.
In a long-awaited finding, a team of Chinese and US scientists has determined the high-resolution atomic structure of a cell-surface receptor that most strains of HIV use to get into human immune cells. The researchers also showed where maraviroc, an HIV drug, attaches to cells and blocks HIV’s en...
Researchers report that they have determined the precise chemical structure of the HIV capsid, a protein shell that protects the virus's genetic material and is a key to its virulence. The capsid has become an attractive target for the development of new antiretroviral drugs.
