Researchers Found A Gene That Blocks HIV From Spreading

Finally, our children could have the chance to HIV immunity, due to a team of researchers from the University of Alberta. The team discovered a gene that might be able to block HIV and prevent the AIDS infection, which is called TRIM22, as Stephen Barr, a molecular virologist in the Department of Medical Microbiology and Immunology stated.

Barr also stated that “when we put this gene in cells, it prevents the assembly of the HIV virus. This means the virus cannot get out of the cells to infect other cells, thereby blocking the spread of the virus,” which would offer the person absolute immunity to HIV and the team also prevented the cells from turning on the TRIM22 gene.

Current medicine was only able to stop the reproduction of HIV into the body, without the possibility of eradicating it, but the team has finally found a gene that will do it naturally. Because of HIV’s possiblity to mutate, medications weren’t reliable, being able to evade them, but this gene can solve this issue.

    Those behaviors which presently promote the spread of HIV, will spread other diseases. This is much like the food addict with the adjusted stomach, another addiction takes the place of food addiction.

    My prediction is when this prevention of the spread of HIV does occur the result will be, those behaviors will start a new disease’s spread. High-risk behavior will stay as high-risk, the difficulty will be, the specific item which people will be at risk of will be, the only part which will change.
