Dr Indrani Sarkar and her team of scientists have created an enzyme that destroys the HIV virus under laboratory conditions. The Tre enzyme can detect HIV and specifically target, and unlike most medicines out there, the virus doesn't become immune to it, so the effects are long-term. According to IBN, "It's an engineered enzyme which recognises sequences in the HIV genome that is duplicated, integrated virus and by the process of recombination, it cuts out the virus from the genome."

"The only way then to cure HIV is to get rid of the virus completely and Tre, the enzyme that Indrani constructed after a year and its 126 "cycles of mutation" totally deplete HIV in the human genome in three months in laboratory conditions."
