The vaccine is ready; sorry, in ten years: the AIDS/SIDA case (February, 22, 2009)

            AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) or SIDA in French has been diagnosed about 28 years ago. It is a virus that affect of immune system.  How this virus came to be in the first place?  The medical establishments claim that this virus appeared over a century ago in rural Africa.  The people affected by AIDS got weak and lost weight and thus their poor immune system were prime target for many other diseases like malaria, tuberculosis, and dozen other diseases.  Thus, death was imputed to these known diseases.

            Then, rural Africa started to flock to the cities and AIDS epidemic flourished and many Europeans and foreigners got contaminated via unprotected sexual contacts. The Cuba military contingents sent to Africa and the South African mercenaries of the apartheid regime at the time and the French troops in West Africa transmitted that disease to Europe and the USA.  Lately, there were published several serious books pointing to probable causes for the widespread of the epidemics; they argued that AIDS was transmitted through live vaccines in Africa intended for other diseases.

            The epidemic was discovered by hazard in 1981. The Center of Disease Control in Atlanta discovered cases of sarcomas of Kaposi (36 cases in 30 months).  In 1983, cases of AIDS were detected in female partners of drug addicts or through infected blood transfusions. AIDS was getting rampant in Haiti and Cuba.  Quarantine health systems were re-applied to all immigrants tested positive to AIDS.

            The UN had issued a report on the state of AIDS in 2006.  There are over 33 millions infected or seropositive (they don’t have AIDS yet but they can transmit the virus sexually or through blood), 2.5 millions infections per year, and 2.1 millions dead per year.  68% of the infected are located in 8 countries in the sub-Saharan regions; obviously, the greatest majority of dead are also from these regions.  China, Central Europe, and South East Asia are experiencing drastic increases in AIDS.  There surely are formulas to predict trends for specific regions, the duration of incubation of the seropositive before it turns AIDS, and the duration to live (life expectancy) before an AIDS patient dies.  These variables are different by regions depending on the State health support and close monitoring of the virus.  In the USA and Europe an AIDS patient can expect to survive 10 years.

            Every now and then we receive news that vaccines for AIDS have been discovered only to get retractions and postponement for another decade.  In the meantime, I suspect Bush Junior zeal to combat AIDS in Africa as means to fund US pharmaceutical companies to pursue testing on ready, helpless, and cheap African guinea pigs.
