Hello, r nWith today’s advances in medical technology. Is it possible that a cure for HIV AIDS can be found? R nI have read about the CRISPR CAS9 which cuts the gene to eliminate the HIV AIDS virus, what do doctors think?

1 Answer:

Hello Deny, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

Until now, there is no cure for HIV. CRISPR CAS9 is a therapy that has good potential in treating HIV, but until now research about this therapy is still in the early experimental stages in animals. The results of studies with CRISPR CAS9 in animals are still varied (some are successful, some are not).


Several other alternative HIV therapies that currently have a potential cure for HIV but are still in the experimental phase include:

long-acting HIV drugs (long acting antiretroviral therapy)
bNAbs antibody therapy (broadly neutralizing antibodies) VRC01
HIV therapy vaccine (therapeutic HIV vaccine)
genetic therapy (CRISPR CAS9 is one of them, but there are several other genetic therapies that are currently in the experimental phase)

Until now, the therapy given to HIV sufferers is antiretroviral drugs that can suppress the replication of the virus in the body of HIV sufferers until it can no longer be detected. With regular consumption of antiretroviral drugs, people with HIV have the opportunity to live normally like normal healthy people.


The following is research on CRISPR CAS9 that you can read

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
