…we’ve cured HIV (well… SORTA).

It worked in mice. It worked in monkeys. And now in humans, a therapeutic vaccine has stopped HIV in its tracks.

The vaccine is made from a patient’s own dendritic cells and HIV isolated from the patient’s own blood.

HIV infection normally turns these important immune system responses off. But animal studies show that when dendritic cells are “loaded” with whole, killed AIDS viruses, they can trigger effective immune responses that keep infected animals from dying of AIDS.

The countdown to “Massive Sex Party in the Streets” begins… NOW.
