The AIDS virus has been completely removed from the rat, and the drug is due next year

According to the World Health Organization, more than 70 million people have been infected with the HIV virus to date. Of these, 35 million died from HIV. Now, over 4 lakh people die every year from HIV.

But the fact that AIDS is an untreated disease will soon become history. Scientists have successfully eliminated the HIV virus from mice with gene editing therapy.
The experiment was performed with CRISPR-Cas9 in combination with a new form of anti-retroviral therapy, according to a research paper published in Nature Communications. This is the first time an organism has wiped out all the symptoms of the HIV virus from its DNA.

The team, led by Kamal Khalili from the Louis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University, has successfully eliminated 100% evidence of HIV infection. According to Gizmodo, more than 30% of infected mice were completely removed from the body of HIV.

After a successful HIV virus elimination technique, Khaleei said in a press release, "there is now a clear path to progress to non-human primates and clinical trials within a year.

For the eradication of the HIV virus, human experiments will soon begin using the possibilities of successful gene editing techniques. Scientists say that by next year, humans will receive treatment for the complete eradication of HIV.
