Given The Opportunity, Would You Be Willing To Volunteer In A Clinical Trial For An HIV/AIDS Cure?

Given The Opportunity, Would You Be Willing To Volunteer In A Clinical Trial For An HIV/AIDS Cure?

Clinical trials are administered in various ways. They can be using medication, intravenously, transfusion, stem cell replacemen etc....There is no cost incurred to the patient and a reimbursement for the day is usually allotted. All expenses are usually covered by the administrating practice. Patients must meet the qualifications of the clinical trial. At-risk patients will not qualify for these trials. The patients' health is number one in these trials and is monitored very closely. ❤️

It seems to me that a cure wouldn't help long term survivors like us. All the years of infection and drug issues would just reverse overnight? I know the body is miraculous, but that's asking a lot. I'm 67. Been positive longer than not. But then that's what studies are for. To figure things out. And yes I have been in studies where we didn't know if the drug would help, hurt, or worse. Be well my friend. Much love to you. Your attitude is what helped move us forward!

I would participate but the criteria could eliminate us. It depends upon the study. But I've always participated when I qualify.

Yes, very recent advances in CRISPR gene editing are extremely encouraging - I believe we're less than 5 years away from a functional cure on that front - fingers crossed! 🙂
