Israeli Scientists Invented New Drug That May Cure AIDS
A team of scientists from Israel has developed a new substance that can kill virus cells without damage to healthy cells and the organism as a whole. Currently, the drug is still undergoing laboratory tests, so it's early to speak about the mass use yet.
The developed material was mixed in the tubes with contaminated blood. The blood was taken from patients who are currently being treated in hospital Kaplan. Thus, clinicians have found that only in 8 days the number of "sick" cells decreased by 97%. At the same time, it was well established that healthy cells are not affected at all.
The head of a group of scientists who worked on the creation of this product Loiter Abraham told that the drug contains a special peptide. This material makes multiple copies of DNA of the disease in the affected cell. As a result, the cells begin a self-destruction. There is only the destruction of infected organisms. In addition, there is no chance that the virus can re-start the development, since the cells are destroyed completely.Also, scientists have noted that the drug may exacerbate some of the processes in the body of the patient, which significantly increases the likelihood of infected cell death. If the drug shows its best side during further tests, it will be used for the treatment. However, scientists can not say when it will be exactly, because there is still a lot of work.
It should be noted that every year the number of people infected with AIDS is increasing. Doctors strongly recommend to take precautions in a timely manner to be tested and pass inspection. In this case, prevention is the only effective mean.
