new treatment preventing HIV

 Finally a cure? Excitement rose at the announcement exclaiming news of a vaccine for HIV, the once terrible disease that caused harm and sadness to many lives. With about 30 percent accuracy, students still remain hesitant in believing this is going to be the real deal.
 HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus and is the virus that causes AID. Spreading so easily and fluidly, without any kind of cure or vaccine, if developed into AIDS was at one time likely a death sentence. Today, with new discoveries, doctors are able to keep the infection under control and one most likely is able to live a normal, happy life.
 With all the continued research and lingering hope, researchers have recently made a breakthrough, discovering this new vaccine. The long running research has finally paid off.
 “I am glad there is going to be something to help people avoid getting this disease,” said MCCC student Tyler Benson. “Hopefully they will find a cure soon.”
 The new found vaccine was tested on more than 16,000 volunteers in Thailand. The vaccine proved successful on every one in three person.
 With the big news bringing newfound confidence and hope, working on the development has become a priority. Scientists continue doing everything they can in improveing the vaccine to eventually make it perfect and flawless.
 The antigen, the medication inserted in one’s body, is a prototype vaccine which successfully produces antibodies that will fight against and prevent the HIV infection.
 The vaccine was formed from a part of the HIV infection found in those who’s infection had not turned into AIDS but still remain with the infection. 
This new information has given medical researchers a huge leap forward in their studies. Doctors are finally a step ahead of the long fight against the disease that once was killing many. This discovery helped researchers to come up with prevention for the disease. It will be a great help in developing new therapeutic treatments to those already diagnosed. Eventually, with the compiling information and continued hard work, a cure for the disease should arise.
Another MCCC student, Eric Frazer is skeptical about the new vaccine working, “The vaccine should work if it is distributed and used intelligently”.
