HIV Vaccine: The Biggest News You Haven’t Heard About


I know the Lebron story was pretty riveting, and Lindsay Lohan’s shenanigans are always entertaining, but I’m going to have to call timeout really quick and direct your attention to this story: http://www.webmd.com/hiv-aids/news/20100709/antibodies-discovery-may-pave-way-to-aids-vaccine.  Researchers have recently found two powerful antibodies that are capable of neutralizing 91 percent of all HIV strains.  According to scientists and researchers, this is proof that an AIDS can succeed.  YAY LEBRON ITS SO AWESOME YOU’RE GOING TO THE HEAT!  Now ESPN and probably CNN will most likely spend the next 2 or so weeks analyzing the analization of the analyzers on what this means for the sports world, but lets talk real world quick.

I know you hate to hear this Lindsay, but there are more important issues in the world than yours. See below.

There is no joke to this picture.

There is a vaccine, that exists today that has the potential to neutralize 91 percent of all HIV strains.  That’s right.  Not trying to make you all feel guilty, unless of course you work for any respectable news agency, then you should probably feel guilty.  Get your shit together and give me some real news.  You could start with news of a vaccine that could end up saving over 30 million people.  That is all.

    I am a registered nurse, and if there really is a vaccine for aids it’ll be among the most outstanding invention in human history, could be listed among the wheel and the nuclear bomb.

    I mean, HIV attacks the immune system. Specifically the ones that create the anti bodies. vaccines are given so that the immune system could make an anti body before hand. so creating a vaccine is really difficult.

    Vaccines are dead or neutralized viruses that are given to the body so it could create an antibody. However since HIV “reproduces” through the RNA’s of the antibody-forming cells, introducing a weakened or dead virus could only create an HIV infection to people who will receive it.
