interesting article

"Britton said the crocodile immune system works differently from the human system by directly attacking microbes immediately an infection occurs."

"The crocodile has an immune system which attaches to bacteria and tears it apart and it explodes. It's like putting a gun to the head of the bacteria and pulling the trigger"

that would be cool if they make our immune system do something like that.

I've read that bone marrow from a baboon was a possible cure for AIDS.
I read it a few years ago and, at that time,
the study had only been conducted on only one or two people.

I don't remember the article all too well,
but it was in a science mag, has anyone ever read this article?


I found the following link, I didn't read all the way through, but you can if you're interested.
It's not the article I was looking for, but along the same lines.
http://www.projinf.org/pub/18/baboon.html
I think I'll read it after my nap.

money isnt a cure , Mr Johnsons doctors admit that they have been able to reduce his AIDS to below detecable levels , but still the virus is within him and can flare up at anytime ...but ya money seems to help everything

It's called HIV, not the HIV virus. The V stands for Virus. I'm willing to bet that you're one of the people that call it an ATM machine.

Goobler is on the right track.

Correction: this thread, as well as any other thread, is for the voicing of stories, facts, opinions, corrections, etc. My reply fell into more than one of those categories. :rockon:

I thought it was informative,
he informed people that the V means virus.

They've had the cure -and- a prophylactic for HIV ever since they first created it in the laboratory. Population control at its best. Only the wealthy elite have access to the cure and prophylactic.

I'm skeptical that this will work.

Other primates have been resistant to SIV, which is the simian version of HIV, through millions of years of evolution. I think they have much more potential to help us than crocodiles.

Quote:

SIV monkey strains are transmitted sexually and usually do not cause disease in their natural hosts. Scientists take this as evidence that host and virus have evolved together for a long time. However, SIV strains may cause an AIDS like immune deficiency known as SAIDS (Simian Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome) if they cross species boundaries. For example, SIV-agm, the SIV strain from African Green Monkeys, causes SAIDS in Rhesus Macaques (the latter are native to Asia and don't carry their own strain of SIV).

SIV was first discovered in 1985, in captive Rhesus Macaques suffering from SAIDS. This was shortly after HIV-1 had been isolated as the cause of AIDS, and it led to the discovery of the HIV-2 strains in West Africa that same year. HIV-2 was more similar to the then-known SIV strains than to HIV-1, suggesting for the first time the primate origin of HIV.

The monkey SIV strains do not infect humans and HIV-1 does not infect monkeys. In 2004, this was explained by different variants of the protein TRIM5α in humans and monkeys. This intracellular protein recognizes the capsid of various retroviruses and blocks their reproduction.

Evidence? Or did you use your Shroomism psychic powers to get this classified information?
