New Vaccine Offers Promise

For more than 20 years, scientists at Scripps Research have chipped away at the challenges of designing an HIV vaccine. Now new research, published in Immunity, shows that their experimental vaccine strategy works in non-human primates.

Trump Quietly Shuts Down HIV Research to Appease the Religious Right

Scientists are speaking out against a directive by the Trump administration that has shut down research into a cure for HIV.

A scientist who was supposed to supply mice that have been modified with human fetal tissue for an HIV study emailed researchers that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) “has directed me to discontinue procuring fetal tissue.”

“This effectively stops all of our research to discover a cure for HIV,” he wrote.… read more

Does anyone else have a very active sex drive? The older I get, the stronger it is.

I have always been very sexual. Now, I feel like it is creating hardships. My hubby is 12 years younger than I am and can’t/ won’t keep up. Am I wrong to want to have sex daily? I am left feeling incomplete. I need not just the physical pleasure, but the emotional connection.

Is there any kind of meal plans you would like to share with everyone? Exercise is important too, but I am just looking to see what people eat on a daily, or weekly basis. So everyone, what do you eat to help with your HIV, how often do you stick to your… read more
