HIV and Aids are a huge issue in the medical world, despite years of research and millions of dollars spent there is still no actual cure or preventative vaccine available at this point. Fortunately research released this week has brought some great news to the world in the form of a potentially effective drug that may prevent the spread of HIV/Aids. The drug is obviously still in development but the current research shows that it is likely to be quite effective in preventing the spread.
The research was conducted at Stanford University and the preliminary test results available now show that the test medicine reduced the chances of contracting HIV by about 50%. This is absolutely great news because it shows that there is in fact progress being made in the area of HIV and Aids research. The vaccine as it is now being considered will likely still be in development for quite some time but the fact that there is solid proof that it is possible is definitely encouraging news for researchers.
Multiple follow up studies are being conducted right now to determine whether or not the pill will actually be this effective in real world scenarios. Experts and medical professionals are incredibly hopeful that it will be as effective as expected and the best part is that researchers hope that at some point it could become a true vaccine that would stop the spread of HIV for good around the world.
