HIV treatment breakthrough – South Africa Scientists Discover how to kill 90% of HIV Strains


South African scientists have discovered how some people can make potent antibodies capable of neutralising strains of HIV, Business Day reported on Monday.

“We’re hoping we can use this information to develop a vaccine that prompts the body’s immune system to make broadly neutralising antibodies,” Penny Moore was quoted saying.

Moore is lead author of a paper describing the discovery, published in Nature Medicine on Sunday.

The scientists have discovered that the virus evolves to evade its host’s immune system by adding a sugar molecule to its surface. The host’s antibodies adapt to recognise the sugar in such a way that they can kill nine of 10 known strains of HIV.

The study is based on blood samples taken at regular intervals over several years from two women infected with HIV, enabling scientists to study how the virus and the women’s antibodies have changed over time, Moore said.
Meanwhile, according to The Gazette (Montreal) newspaper, a new study has found that chemicals commonly found in bananas are as potent in preventing HIV as two synthetic anti-HIV drugs.

Researchers say the findings could lead to a cheap new component for applied microbicides that prevent intimate transmission of HIV.

The miracle substance in bananas is called BanLec, a type of lectin, which are the sugar-
binding proteins found in a variety of plants. Scientists have long been interested in lectins because of their ability to halt the chain reaction that leads to certain viral infections.

In the case of BanLec, it works by binding naturally to the sugar-rich envelope that encases the HIV virus, thus blocking its entry into the body. “The problem with some HIV drugs is that the virus can mutate and become resistant, but that’s much harder to do in the presence of lectins.

Lectins can bind to the sugars found on different spots of the HIV-1 envelope, and presumably it will take multiple mutations for the virus to get around them,” said lead author Michael D. Swanson.

  2. I viewers, I was diagnosed officially in March 2015. I've SO MANY symptoms! The "diabetic nerve pain"-tho I'm
    NOT Diabetic! Just LOTS of it! The tingling, & numbness & fatigue and ALL the rest! Do I HAVE to live the remainder of my life this way? I don't even have the energy to get my
    NORMAL tests, let alone an M.S. one! To get out of bed& go out is BEYOND a chore for me! Nobody would understand it! My life was a living nightmare - in ADDITION to what I have to endure with one of my sons.(I can't even
    take care of him) - I desperately search for an alternative cure to save my life till a friend of mine from UK told me about Dr. MOHAMEND from AFRICA who cured her husband from ALS, PLS, and FSHD with His Herbal Healing OIL, ROOT and HERBS. I contacted Dr. MOHAMEND through His what'sapp number and told him about my MS problem and he assured me that I will be CURED that he has CURES to any disease and VIRUS. I was very happy to hear that from him. I place an ORDER and he sent it through a courier delivery service to my address which I sent to him. I received it within 4 days and immediately commerce usage as prescribed by Dr. MOHAMEND In the first one week of usage, I started noticing great change all over my body, I was now gaining STRENGHT gradually, after three weeks, I was able to move my arms and legs, talk and also swallow. I was totally CUREDof MS disease after six weeks. You can contact Dr. MOHAMEND via his email: drmohamendherbalremedy@gmail.com or call/whatsapp on +2348148010628. My FAMILY and I refer people to HIM everyday and everyone who has contacted him is recovering and seeing
    REVERSAL in SYMPTOMS. Please share this with anyone you know is suffering from ALS, PLS, MS, MSA, FSHD, Parkinson's, and Fibromyalgia. I believe he treats more than those things, so if you have questions please just call. Can't hurt. Let me know if you have any questions!
