HIV Free or Not?

Shall there be an HIV/AIDS-Free Future? Is there a true silver lining to the AIDS/HIV epidemic? Well all cynicism aside, some experts think so.

Two and a half years after a Mississippi case of a girl born to an HIV positive mother was diagnosed and later cured of the disease herself, it would seem that adults could and can be cured of the same. Doctors are saying that this incident that occurred accidentally could be the game changer that we have all been waiting for.

In support of the findings from the Mississippi case, researchers and AIDS experts alike agree that early detection can lead to more HIV cures. According to Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institute of Health, he told CNN "the best way to either eliminate the virus or allow the immune system to suppress residual virus is to treat someone as early as possible after infection so as not to allow a substantial reservoir of the virus to take hold."

That being said, as all positive accounts pertain to early detection, hope for a cure is definitely growing.

With a story like this it is no surprise that we ask- Are we entering an age with NO AIDS? Will the world of Pharmaceuticals allow for this?

These questions may continually be answered with a resounding NO- But at least for now these questions can all be YES' as they pertain to toddlers.

Implications - This story is interesting to businesses because pharmaceutical all over the world profit from sales of Antiretrovirals and they would incur billions in losses if a cure for AIDS/HIV was found. 
On the other hand a business with a view that promotes social awareness or charity giving, marketing would rise significantly even though long term revenues might experience a dip in profits. This dip as a result of competition reached once patents are approved would hit all time record lows and then any monopoly to a particular business would dissolve.
Nevertheless, any business involved with the initial venture of selling HIV/AIDS medication would have huge profits in figures that are simply- UNIMAGINABLE(Even if we are talking of the future). Stats for HIV Be Gone! Trending: Older & Chilly
