I think it's good that he put cured in quotations. It's so people here don't get their hopes up in thinking the virus itself was 100% cured, like the last post that said one child was cured of HIV

HIV is like herpes, you can never really call it cured, per se (at least with the current state of the art medicine), because it's a lysogenic virus and stays in the host cells. It just falls below dangerous levels.

The new treatment is basically the same as what we've been using (antivirals) -- just more of them and earlier use. The virus isn't gone from the body, just crippled so the risk of developing AIDS is essentially zero.

In case anyone was wondering.

My mother always used them for emphasis rather than the usual purpose.

Given the last two years of my life, that's a valid assumption.

It's because they've developed a new antiretroviral prevention protocol. It basically sucker punches the virus before it sets up shop, "functionally" curing it. Who knows for how long though.

The HIV one reminds me of Cave Johnson. "We've 'cured' 14 adults of HIV. And by 'cured' I mean we've killed them, but on the bright side they're no longer afflicted by such a horrible disease as HIV."

Change of plans, the aids tests have been cancelled. However we've come up with a new test: fighting an army of monkey men!

So, grab a rifle and follow the yellow line. You'll know when the test starts.
