A less conventional strategy Silvestry said might be to persuade the enemy not to attack at all. Such alternative strategies could include development of AIDS vaccines that make infected individuals resistant to disease progression or resistant to the virus by reducing the number of cells the virus can infect he said. The proposal appears as a commentary featured in the journal Nature Medicine.

Herpes testing may reveal higher risk of HIV
While it had been thought that the two to three-fold increase in risk was due to the presence of sores and lesions on the skin which can increase the chance for HIV to get into the blood stream scientists discovered last year that even people whose lesions had been treated are still at higher risk. New research published in the journal Nature Medicine reveals that changes in the immune-cell environment at the location of these lesions persist and render the skin at these areas more permeable to HIV. "HSV-2 infection provides a wide surface area and long duration of time for allowing HIV access to more target cells providing a greater chance for the initial ‘spark’ of infection" the authors write. Herpes simplex 2 is one of the most common STDs found in the U. with an estimated 45 million people infected according to the CDC.
