Conspiracy theory! Do you think they already have a cure and just use weaker treatment to make money?

They might have something they are currently testing but I don't believe they would be hiding someone they were SURE that cured AIDS. I mean why would they? They could make a lot more money off the real cure then they could for separate medications used to lengthen peoples' lives.

I don't think they have a cure yet but they certainly aren't in any hurry to find it. An individual infected with HIV/AIDS is a patient for life. Ka-ching. Why would they be in a hurry to lose their patients?

I don't think they have the cure but it wouldn't surprise me if they were suppressing cheaper treatments/drugs/etc to make more money. The healthcare 'industry' is pretty damned greedy.

I thought I read that they were on the edge of having a cure.

I think there are cures, but nothing 100% for every case.

I firmly believe if they had the cure they wouldn't be letting people suffer still.

There really isn't any money in letting people die of a disease. The person who announced they had found a cure for HIV would have approximately all of the money. The first wave of money for the cure would be so huge that even a greedy person would have their wildest dreams fulfilled.

I seriously doubt it. I'm not into conspiracy theories at all.

There is no evidence of a 'hidden cure'. Where possible cures have eradicated or nearly-eradicated diseases like Small Pox and Polio. There is plenty for the medical community to do - even if AIDS were to somehow become curable.

While there is actually evidence that AIDS has been cured before (here and here and here will give you a starting point if you wish to do some reading on the subject) this is certainly not something that can be done in more than a minute numbers of AIDS sufferers. Essentially, the first evidence came about after a leukemia patient was given a bone marrow transplant in 2008. Because of a rare mutation of his immune system's cells, the receptors that essentially allow HIV to re-enter (I'm very much oversimplifying this, but the way) aren't present and he was officially declared HIV-free despite having ceased AIDS medication.

This procedure was actually much more likely to have killed him than cured him, so it's not a practical solution, but I just thought that I'd being a bit of sunshine to the conspiracy parade.

The more you know, right?

No. Also doesn't sound like an effective way to make more money.

I don't think they do.

I think there are definitely known experimental treatments that maybe don't work on enough people to really let out there.

There have been people who have had AIDS who no longer have it, so I wonder. . .

I think they're getting there. I don't think it's a conspiracy theory, just perhaps not a completely developed treatment yet.
