"HIV researchers at The University of Texas Medical School at Houston (UT Medical) believe they have uncovered the Achilles heel in the armor of the HIV virus. The weak spot is hidden in the HIV envelope protein gp120, essential for HIV's attachment to host cells." It looks as if trials will offer results within 5 years. My partner works in the HIV/STD health field and he says this is huge news. There have been many other treatments, but this is very promising.
