Australian scientists can soon create HIV vaccine, which will help to combat deadly disease
According to reports, Australian scientists can soon create HIV Vaccine. And we must say they have finally taken right step in the right direction. As per reports, researchers from South Australia’s University Adelaide and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital have used a common cold virus to introduce their DNA- based vaccine into the immune system of laboratory mice.
The team of the scientists targeted the vaccine into the areas in which the HIV infection is commonly found. After the test they found significant reduction of infection rates in mice.
The team is hopeful and is thinking that their discovery is definitely pointing them towards the right direction.
According to reports, Branka Grubor- Bauk from the University of Adelaide has said now the team has made the important breakthrough, and it is vital that research continues into a human vaccine for the HIV infection.
The common cold virus has been created after a long four years of study. When it was vaccinated in them ice they got positive results. The vaccine can help to combat deadly HIV virus.
As per surveys and reports, 36.7 million people across the world are living with HIV and 40 percent do not know their status. Notably, HIV continues to be a major global public health and many people are dying because of the deadly HIV virus.
In the year 2015, there were around 2.1 million new HIV infections, 150,00o of which were among children.
Although, HIV treatment in the world has increased dramatically in recent years, but still there is a requirement of solid treatment to combat this deadly disease and this vaccine could prove very beneficial.
In 2015, US$ 19 billion was invested in HIV and AIDS response in low- and – middle income countries with 57 percent of the total HIV resources in these countries.
