Is a cure for Aids within reach? Scientists succeed in destroying HIV-infected cells in major breakthrough

Scientists have announced a potentially major breakthrough in the fight against HIV. 
Researchers at Paris' Institut Pasteur claim they have successfully destroyed cells infected with the virus, which is typically treated with antiretroviral drugs. 
The drugs are unable to remove the virus from the body, but medical journal Cell Metabolism yesterday published findings which announced that scientists had found a way to eliminate infected 'reservoir' cells.  
In a news release uploaded to EurekaAlert, an Institut Pasteur spokesperson said: 'The antiretroviral treatment used today is designed to block HIV infection but it is not able to eliminate the virus from the body. 
'The virus remains in reservoirs - the CD4 T lymphocyte immune cells, the main targets of HIV.'
HIV targets cells with high metabolic activity and 'hijacks' their energy in order to multiply.
The release later states: 'Thanks to metabolic activity inhibitors, the researchers have managed to destroy these infected cells, or "reservoirs", ex vivo.'
It concludes by stating that the research opens the possibility of new pathways towards remission by eliminating the 'reservoir' cells. 
The next step in research will be assessing the potential of metabolic inhibitors 'in vivo' - tested on living organisms. 
In theory, if the viral load is low enough, destroying the cell HIV hides in and draws energy from could keep it from spreading in the body and, perhaps, eradicate it altogether, it is hoped.   
The study was funded by the Institut Pasteur, AmfAR (American Foundation for AIDS research) and Sidaction.

    If you ever expect to "cure" any disease you had best find out what causes the disease. There is NO scientific peer-reviewed evidence that AIDS is caused by HIV. What does cause AIDS is simple to eliminate from your life. Should you have AIDS it is relatively easy to cure.

    “We took 12 people diagnosed with full blown AIDS, each with at least 13 out of 30 AIDS diagnosing symptoms, at the Tri State Healing Center of NY. An immune building and detoxification regimen was administered under medical supervision. At the end of 14 months all 12 out of 12 were completely normal with no symptoms of AIDS.” Doctor Gary Null PhD Note what does this tell us? AIDS is man made both as to
    its origin and its continuation as a cause of death. Shame, shame, shame. The same people killing our children with "Vaccination" are killing us with AIDS.

  3. No, smallpox is the only one so far, and that was 1980.
