A team of British scientists may be on the brink of developing a cure for HIV. According to Mark Samuels of Britain’s National Institute for Health Research, this is one of the first serious attempts at a full cure for HIV. He added that they are exploring the real possibility of curing HIV. Although it is a huge challenge and still in the early days, the progress has been remarkable. Britain’s National Health Service is backing the clinical trials, which are the result of a collaboration between the universities of Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial College London, University College London and King’s College London. Sarah Fidler, a consultant physician and professor at Imperial College London, said medical tests of the potential breakthrough therapy would continue for the next five years.
