Can HIV/AIDS be cured? - Professor Wuke University will give you an answer.

Before World AIDS Day (December 1), news about AIDS is bound to blow up the circle of friends. On November 26, a news about the birth of the world's first "gene-edited baby" immunized with AIDS in China opened a pot in the scientific community. People denounced it as a crazy experiment against ethics and morality. By contrast, on November 27, the news fever of "two professors of Wuke University invented a new method to cure AIDS that can completely eradicate HIV" was not so high, but it also attracted more attention. People were curious about what kind of technology this new method is. According to news reports, Professors Zhang Tongcun and Gu Chaojiang of the School of Life Sciences and Health of Wuhan University of Science and Technology have received patent certificates from the State Intellectual Property Office for the invention of the recombinant gene of a chimeric antigen receptor for the treatment of HIV infection and its application. "The patent creatively develops a new therapeutic approach for `CAR-T', which kills HIV-infected cells. AIDS research experts, Professor Volsky DJ of Mount Sinai University in the United States commented. Chinese people are curious whether HIV can be cured thoroughly. Because they have experienced too many false scientific research to cheat funds, they all look at this with suspicion. Although there are great breakthroughs, the fever is not too high. It was not long before the rumor was disproved. Although there were undeniable breakthroughs, it could not achieve a complete cure effect. To refute rumors CAR-T treatment of AIDS is still an attempt, not a complete cure! The prospect of CAR-T treatment of AIDS is worth looking forward to, but at present, the difficulties are still very great, it is too early to talk about the cure of AIDS! This is because, first, the clinical trial sample size is too small and too small, need to continue to expand the sample size, to obtain more evidence of efficacy. Second, CAR-T therapy has a huge clinical risk: cytokine storm, also known as cytokine release syndrome. This is because T cells release many proteins, called cytokines, when they kill other cells, such as bacterial viruses. Their function is to activate more immune cells to fight these pathogens together. This positive feedback mechanism ensures the rapid elimination of pathogens. Similar to our body's inflammation in response to infection, usually our tonsils inflammation is related to this. Because CAR-T kills cancer cells too quickly and effectively, it produces super-large amounts of cytokines locally in an instant, causing an astonishing immune response, which is cytokine storm. The clinical manifestation is that the patient can't get rid of his high fever. If he doesn't control it well, he may not be able to save it. That's why I said that the last step of CAR-T is to closely monitor patients, which is really crucial. AIDS patients themselves are immune deficiency groups. If cytokine storm occurs, whether it can be successfully passed requires close attention in the course of clinical trials, which is also one of the great risks of this treatment program. It seems that a breakthrough in public relations among our scientists is needed to achieve a complete cure. We hope that this day will come soon, so that countless HIV patients can be saved! uuuuuuuuu
