    It's better for human to live in some kind of fear.

    Once we got a cure for HIV/AIDS, there will be other diseases popping out of the Pandora's Box.

    This is all speculation. As good as it sounds, it's important to remember that.

    Spoken like a true religious leader and politician. Ya, we should all live in fear our whole lives. Good idea.

    Hopefully it will work ... It would seem that the key,though, will be early detection, since it depends on the person's own immune system.

    Relax!

    I just want to remind us the importance of safe sex, even if we have the cure.

    Sorry if it hurts some people.

    You didn't say fuck all about safe sex. What you said is "We don't need a cure." That is a stupid, arrogant and insensitive thing to say. From someone who has witnessed first hand the deaths of friends and family from a horrific disease and watched a whole generation of gay men decimated, apology not accepted.

    The "brink" in scientific terms can mean twenty years, but this is stunning news if true because according to this article this Danish "cure" is already in clinical trials, which (again if true) means some health industry entity is actually seriously planning marketing this.

    I've always thought we'd get a vaccine before a cure, but with implosion and shutdown of the vaccine trial last week, the situation looked grim for HIV research. So this news is unexpected.

    If you wanted to say Safe Sex is important - say that.

    That is not what you said.

    At the age of 30 you have NO excuse for being such an inarticulate, insensitive, BACK-PEDALLING ASS.

    You didn't hurt anyone as much you just repulsed some.





    I will assume it is something you are accustomed to.

    I understand this would be a joy for many and for many it would also be a way for many to go back to the gay lifestyle the way it was before the Gay Plague Era ever come along; all that free love that was unknowingly to feed the HIV virus that lead to the Gay Plague Era and all those deaths.


    OMG how long have I been awaiting for a cure for HIV/HIVS to come along to cure so many mates and loved ones who are now long dead and long gone. Not sure what a difference a cure to HIV/AIDS would make to my life now. After all I bet the odds and got to be middle age and too be HIV-; even though I have survived people going out of their way to infect one, as they had been. No since there is no cure for death to bring make so many lost friends and loved ones, and the fact I am middle aged and HIV- not sure what difference a cure it would make to my life anymore; not to say I would be totally devoid of some joy.

    You're right. Let's deliberately not save the millions of people slowly dying from HIV. Let's continue to depend on expensive drugs with horrific side effects to treat those that will serve as nothing but a fear tactic to shame the rest of us into practicing safe sex.

    Let's instead use the money to efface the planet of such idiots as yourself.

    It'll will be amazing if it works, but we've supposedly been on the brink of a cure before. It's best to have patience and continue to be careful.

    Within months? I've been hearing about a cure for cancer my entire life. I don't think a cure for HIV will happen in our lifetime. HIV has probably been around since the beginning of time. Unlike many diseases it's mostly preventable and treatable to a certain extent.
