HIV fight advances with new drug cocktails, fresh vaccine hopes


Three decades after approval of the first-ever AIDS treatment, HIV medicine is seeing a new wave of innovation with scientists reporting positive data on Monday for improved drug cocktails and a novel experimental vaccine. Adding to optimism is the success of antiretrovirals in preventing infection - an approach known as pre-exposure prophylaxis - as well as growing hopes for an eventual "functional" cure that may keep the virus at bay without drugs.
