eeevil drugs companies

Looks like another victory for the eeevil drugs companies. An experimental HIV drug with remarkable properties:
A small human trial of the drug, reported last August, showed that when given on its own it rapidly clears most HIV from the blood, driving down the levels tenfold in a matter of hours.
Plus also news on why some people are more suseptable to HIV than others, a genetic difference to the chemical structures the virus has to bind to to infect a cell. Not as immidiately useful as the new drug, but in the long term prevention is better than cure.
