Housecall For Health: AIDS Research Milestones
Many people around the world are wearing red ribbons and showing support today in observance of World AIDS Day, and scientists continue to look at ways to prevent the virus.
FOX News Radio’s Marghiee Teshineh reports in today’s Housecall for Health:
Since AIDS was first reported 30 years ago, scientists have not been able to successfully create a broadly effective vaccine to prevent infection. So researchers tried a different approach which has resulted in 100 percent protection against HIV in mice. According to a study just published in the Journal Nature, a protective gene is injected in the mice providing antibodies that shield the immune system from the virus. Researchers hope to test the approach on humans in the next couple of years.
