Scientists Plan to Announce Research Strategy Aimed at Pursuing HIV/AIDS Cure, Wall Street Journal Reports

July 19, 2012

On July 19, ahead of the XIX International AIDS Conference in Washington, D.C., "prominent AIDS scientists plan to announce the first comprehensive research strategy aimed at pursuing new leads and addressing hurdles to a cure" for HIV/AIDS, the Wall Street Journal reports. "The announcement of the initiative will be followed by a two-day symposium on cure research," the newspaper continues, noting, "Recent research has offered a glimpse of paths to a cure. That promise, together with breakthroughs in preventing transmission of the disease, is spurring optimism that the epidemic, which kills about 1.7 million people a year, can eventually be brought under control." The newspaper highlights several cases and studies on prevention and treatment (McKay/Winslow, 7/18). The International AIDS Society discusses the initiative in a press release (.pdf) (7/19). The Associated Press/Washington Post features a video examining some of the research (Bradley, 7/19).
