always AIDS it is considered an untreatable disease, perhaps to be kept under control, but impossible to heal completely. From today, something could change.
“There is a serious possibility that within the next three to five years, HIV patients will come negativized, also becoming non-contagious with relatively mild therapies ". It is an important step forward to avoid new infections. The news is given by Luca Pani, Director General of the Italian Medicines Agency (Aifa). It is one of the most striking news in relation to the fight against HIV since the virus was officially recognized.
Preventing the infection would mean giving a major blow to the disease, preventing it from spreading like wildfire around the world. And unfortunately the percentages of contagion, to date, they grow at least 4 percent every year. “In general, new scenarios will open up in the coming years for oncological, infectious and neurodegenerative diseases”, continues Pani.
Lower costs of future AIDS medicine are also predicted compared to the costs of current therapies, in a different way to what happened with hepatitis C.
