The International AIDS Society (IAS) on Thursday in Washington, D.C., "released what they call a road map for research toward a cure for HIV -- a strategy for global teams of scientists to explore a number of intriguing leads that just might, years from now, pan out," the Associated Press reports (Neergaard, 7/20). "The ... scientific strategy focuses efforts on key areas such as the reservoirs where human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) holes up in the body, and the small number of people worldwide who seem to have some natural resistance," Agence France-Presse writes (Sheridan, 7/19). "The new strategy outlines seven main priorities for research straddling basic, translational, and clinical science if either a 'sterilizing cure,' which permanently removes the virus, or a 'functional cure,' which controls it for years without drugs, is to be found," the Lancet notes (Corbyn, 7/20).
