Researchers Successfully Eliminate HIV Virus In Human Cells
July 25th, 2014
A scientific first from Philadelphia, that could pave the way toward curing HIV. 
Instead of suppressing and treating HIV and AIDS, which is what currently happens, researchers have for the first time shown they’ve found a way to destroy the virus.
It might not look like a typical operating room, but in a lab at Temple’s Center for Neurovirology researchers are performing surgeries on genes.  Welcome to the front lines of genetic surgery. They’ve found a way to operate on DNA and destroy the AIDS virus.
“It’s an important finding because for the first time in laboratory setting we show that the virus can be eradicated from human culture, cell culture," said Dr. Kamel Khalili, who led the research team. They developed molecular tools that can hunt down and delete HIV in cells.
“Basically converting infected cells to un-infected cells and that is very important because the current therapy can not eliminate the virus from cells,” said Dr. Khalili.
Dr. Khalili showed a slide with a cell infected with HIV, highlighted in green. Then he showed another slide where the HIV is gone, the result of Temple’s gene surgery.
“We have a cure for HIV elimination. We have a system to eliminate HIV from the cells in the laboratory,” said Dr. Khalili.
Now the next step is to find a way to move the discovery from the lab into animals then people, the groundwork being set for curing HIV.

Thirty-three-million people have HIV. One million are in the United States. Every year 50,000 Americans contract the virus.

WOOT!

    LTR - Long Term Relationships
    In our society, success is often based on being in a long term relationship, that lasts a life time. We put a lot of emphasis on building relationships and staying in them, even when the grow sour, or when we stop growing. We feel bad when relationships end. We often feel as though we failed in some way. Mou and Jenoa remind us that it is okay to say goodbye when something is over. It is okay, and in fact it may be good for you to walk away from something that no longer works for you. We can acknowledge what we learned from a relationship. 

    The Sex Talk is a weekly webisode that discusses sex, relationships, dating and more. Moushumi Ghose is a sex therapist in Los Angeles and New York, Jenoa Harlow is an actress who identifies as a lesbian. They encourage thinking in terms that are good for you, not for the larger society.

    There’s this shitty thing that happens when you learn about the reality of racism, sexism and misogyny. You start to hear it from the mouths of your parents, grandparents, friends and siblings and you can’t ignore it anymore but you’ll see how many of them will ignore you when you speak out about it.

    It’s fucking everywhere.

    Reblog this is if it is okay to come to you and just vent my heart out, cry to you, yell to you, or just chat with you. We are all in need of somebody to talk to.

    Always… anyone…
