Post-Halladay Video Treat: Prospects for HIV Cure

roy-halladayFor a little entertainment between playoff games — but how could anyone beat the guy in the picture? — you might want to check out this interview I did with Dan Kuritzkes about the prospects for an HIV cure.

So which do you think we’ll see first — an HIV cure or a vaccine?  And I don’t mean an isolated (and impractical to carry out on a large scale) strategy like the famous bone marrow transplant case, or the weak protective effect from the first “effective” vaccine study done in Thailand.

No, for this to count, it has to be a strategy for HIV cure that could be widely implemented, or a vaccine that is both highly protective and practical to distribute.

Around 7 minutes into the video, Dan lets us know his opinion!
