We are NEVER pro-suicide… unless we're talking about HIV cells!!
In a shocking turn of events, it sounds like a common foot cream has the ability to trick HIV cells into killing themselves, which is probably the most metal way of curing something we could think of! The best part it, when the treatment stops, the HIV doesn't bounce back!
The common drug is usually used by doctors to treat nail fungus, and it apparently eradicates the virus. The fact that it doesn't bounce back means that it might not require you to use it for the rest of your life, like common HIV drugs out there today!
The drug is called Ciclopirox, and it inhibits the expression of HIV genes in culture, while also blocking the essential function of the mitochondria. This activates the cell's suicide pathway, KEEPING THE HEALTHY CELLS SAFE!
Of course, this is just culture-based for now, and clinical human trials are needed. The fact that it's safe for humans already as a topical cream could mean that the trial process could be much faster than usual!
Do what you need to do, guys! This is huge!!
