Indian Doctor Develops HIV Destroying Enzyme

Great health news from India…

Dr Indrani Sarkar has has every reason to be excited. Her PhD thesis, which started in 2002 at the Max Planck Institute in Dresden, Germany, has thrown open the doors for developing enzymes that can destroy the dreaded Human Immuno-deficiency Virus or HIV within infected cells permanently.

Indrani and a team of scientists have developed an enzyme called Tre. Tre is a custom enzyme capable of detecting, recognising and destroying HIV, much like a pair of molecular scissors.

This is really great news…

It’s a shame though that it might take from 5 to even 20 years for this cure to make it to the clinics and actually be used to cure people suffering from HIV.

Hopefully, things will move on faster than that and rid humanity of HIV/AIDS for good.
