Ending the HIV/AIDS pandemic - 4
Narrator: This is NIH health matters, I’m Joe Balintfy. Researchers are working hard to help reach the goal of creating an AIDS-free generation. NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins says areas of research include vaccine trials, new drug therapies, and perhaps even a cure.
Collins: That we could actually figure out how to eradicate the virus completely from somebody who is infected so that they wouldn't have to take therapy for the rest of their lives. Very uncertain, very much built upon one patient in many situations, but still exciting.
Narrator: Experts admit that the HIV/AIDS pandemic is an enormous, multifaceted challenge, but say it can be met. For more on HIV/AIDS research, visit www.niaid.nih.gov. Health Matters is produced by the National Institutes of Health, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
