HIV AIDS: Could There Be a Breakthrough?

The Salt Lake Tribune is reporting:

"What studies to date show is a compound that attacks HIV at its molecular membrane level, disrupting the virus from interacting with their primary targets, the "T-helper" class white blood cells that comprise and direct the human immune system. Further, CSAs appear to be deadly to all known strains of HIV. "

Ceragenix Pharmaceuticals sponsored the study, and although the results are preliminary the tests show promise that the cure for AIDS may be near at hand.

Already, CSA-54 results have been reproduced by others. This is a positive sign that a long sought after cure for AIDS has been isolated.

The story does not stop here.

Indications are that a family of compounds called Ceragenins may be effective against influenza, possibly even the dread bird flu, along with smallpox and herpes.

Animal and human trials have not yet begun, but there are hopes the CSA compounds may hold the key to eliminating AIDS.

Dr. Savage, of Brigham Young University, is credited with the discovery.
