HIV Stopper?

"With the latest advances in treatment, doctors have discovered that they can successfully neutralise the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The so-called ‘combination therapy’ prevents HIV from mutating and spreading, allowing patients to rebuild their immune system to the same levels as the rest of the population."

Now let's just hope this treatment actually goes the distance... :)

Hasn't this been around for a while? I might just be quoting ER or something here but I'm sure there's a cocktail of drugs that they give to doctors / nurses who get stuck with a HIV-infected needle whilst working.

Maybe they've just made it more cost-effective.

Not so much. Regimens up to this point have been able to slow the march, not really stop it in its tracks.
