      We are always getting better at developing cures for certain diseases, so I think we would be able to cure more patients with this approach, however there’s always challenges. So keep an eye on this. In comparison to the 60s, AIDS has moved from being a killer disease to a manageable disease, so maybe in the next 50yrs we’ll move on again to eradicating it.
