Will there ever be a cure for AIDS? Researchers have now decided to focus on finding new ways to prevent the spread of the AIDS virus. Researchers have been trying to come up with a vaccine to prevent AIDS but it has yet to come to fruition. They have now decided to use microbicides to help prevent the spread of AIDS; microbicides are gels that women can put into their vagina before they have sexual intercourse with their partner.
According to the researchers, the microbicides prevented monkeys from getting a form of the AIDS virus. Microbicides could be very beneficial to women especially those who are unmarried and are engaging in sexual intercourse. The microbicides help to stick to the HIV and prevent it from getting into the bodyâ€™s cells.
Microbicides could stop more than two million people a year from contracting AIDS; this could be very beneficial to helping the fight against AIDS and HIV. AIDS is a very dangerous virus that attacks the immune system; there are medications that can be taken to help with the symptoms of the virus but there is no cure for AIDS or HIV so those who contact AIDS or HIV will usually die from the disease at some point in time.
In order to help reduce your chances of contracting the AIDS virus, you should use a condom every time that you have sexual intercourse. You should ask your partner whether or not they have been tested for HIV and AIDS, what their sexual history is like, and if they have ever used intravenous drugs. Hopefully, researchers will be able to find a cure for HIV and AIDS in the next few years.
