According to and The Wall Street Journal a cure for AID’s is closer than everyone expects.
Federal scientists, who work for the U. S. government, found a couple of powerful antibodies
, which kill 91% of HIV strains in the human bloodstream.

HIV virus is highly mutable and can change its protein composition different times to avoid being caught by any immune system or any medications.
Scientists have found an unchanging part of the virus and consequently, managed to attach an antibody that sticks to this part of the virus and eliminate it.
The HIV antibodies were discovered in the cells of a 60-year-old African-American gay man, known in the scientific literature as Donor 45, whose body made the antibodies naturally. The trick for scientists now is to develop a vaccine or other methods to make anyone's body produce them as well.
