International project seeks to eliminate HIV in kids:

The Pediatric Adolescent Virus Elimination Collaboratory will receive a total of up to $27.6 million over five years, the National Institutes of Health announced. The group plans to develop and test new early-intervention strategies that are designed to provide children remission and a cure from HIV without relying on the antiretroviral therapies that are currently used to treat both children and adults living with HIV.

The potential effectiveness of such strategies will initially be evaluated using the monkey form of HIV in nonhuman primate newborns at OHSU's Oregon National Primate Research Center and at Emory University's Yerkes National Primate Research Center. The collaboration will also focus on developing procedures, tools and techniques, such as imaging, that are specifically designed for infants, children and adolescents living with HIV.

[...] More information about this and other new pediatric HIV research funded by the National Institutes of Health is available in announcements from the NIH and Emory University.

    "You should go to a rodeo sometime." Eric lectured Sally. Sally was not programmed by the rope or hose, but she knew full well what Eric was talking about when he grabbed that hammer.

    Soup coming to a boil.

    The hairy beast paused to urinate in the forest, having eluded capture by the humans. With his dirt encrusted fingernails he carved out a circle on his forehead, and a small sparrow flew out flooding the beast with copious dopamine.

    Give the bird a tail?

    Call this treatment anything you want. I hope it helps people. Just don't use the (OMG!!!) word 'vaccine' anywhere near it.

    Never use a needlessly simple solution to a problem when a much more complex solution would suffice.

      The article specifically calls it a "cure." Vaccines are not cures by definition, so your concern won't be an issue, thankfully.
