Correction to HIV story


During the past week a story originating in the Telegraph entitled "Scientists on brink of HIV cure" has been published in other medias.

The article's title and subtitle suggests that a cure for HIV is expected in months. But this is not the case, according to the Danish researchers from Aarhus University Hospital whose work was cited in the Telegraph.

- We are not on the brink of an HIV cure, says Dr. Ole Søgaard from Aarhus University Hospital.
- We have an exciting study in which a potential anti-HIV latency reversing agent is tested in persons with HIV. We are making good progress, but there is still a long way to go."

The authors state that they regret if anyone got the impression from reading the article that there may be a cure for HIV in the immediate future. Like many others, the researchers believe that a cure for HIV is an achievable goal, but most likely it will take many years, numerous basic science discoveries, and several phase 1/2 trials before a HIV cure may actually be reached.
