In 2012, an estimated 2.3 million individuals worldwide were newly infected with HIV, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Many have prayed to see the day a cure is found – and those prayers may soon be answered.

Researchers at Temple University in Philadelphia have found a way to destroy HIV and AIDs by operating on the DNA system. Professor and Chair of the Department of Neuroscience, Dr. Kamel Khalili, talks with CBS about how they did it:

“Basically converting infected cells to un-infected cells and that is very important because the current therapy can not eliminate the virus from cells…we have a cure for HIV elimination. We have a system to eliminate HIV from the cells in the laboratory.”

According to CBS Local, it’s now just a matter of bringing the system of elimination discovery to life with clinical trials on animals and eventually humans.

According to Dr. Khalili, there is not a specific period that the discovery will make its way to clinical trials, however many people are tuned in to see what will happen next and if the HIV and AIDs epidemic has finally come to an end.
