targeting the Aids virus

Postby tiles12345 » Wed Nov 28, 2012 7:55 pm

could we be able to take a bacteria and change its genome to attack aids without harming the human.

hello.Aids is actually a disease that attacks and destroy t-helper cells so i dont think you could use a programmed bacteria to attack aids.Aids actually develops inside t-helper cell.
My scientific studies have afforded me great gratification; and I am convinced that it will not be long before the whole world acknowledges the results of my work.-Gregor Mendel

Hello people. I hope we all know quite well about immunology. HIV attacks only T-lymphocytes.
But, we have our innate immunity left and our B-lymphocytes go unaffected by HIV.
The Natural Killer Cells,macrophages,interferons,etc.... we still have many defences left.
Why dont we find a way to stimulate them????????????

An antifungal foot cream called Ciclopirox shows abilities to STOP and ERADICATE HIV. It inhibits the expression of it's genes, blocks mitochondrial function and activates the cell suicide pathway. This spares the unaffected healthy cells. HIV couldn't bounce back even after Ciclopirox was removed.It is also perfectly safe for human use.This completely destroys HIV-1. But, there are many other mutants out there. We must somehow use an irreversible inhibitor on the reverse transcriptase enzyme.
