From CNN Associate Producer Jennifer Hauser:
More than 33 million people are living with HIV or AIDS, according to the United Nations. Imagine the impact a potential vaccine could make. Scientists at the National Institutes of Health have discovered three antibodies that can actually neutralize 91% of HIV strains. They discovered these antibodies in the blood of HIV-positive people. So the people carrying the virus could be holding the cure. Antibodies have been found in the past, but none with as strong a structure as these. CNN’s Don Lemon spoke with two popular AIDS activists who are also HIV positive. Sherri Lewis has had the virus since the 1980s. She’s spoken about it at numerous events and received all kinds of reactions over the years. Phill Wilson is the founder and executive director of the Black AIDS Institute. His focus is fighting AIDS in the black community.
