Can you stop the spreading of a virus such as HIV by using an enzyme? If you can stop the spreading, why can't you eliminate the virus?

Dear student,
Please find below the solution to the asked query

This topic is still under research. There is no proper cure and treatment of AIDS. However, scientists have claimed to find an enzyme like DNA-snipping enzyme called Cas9 that can cut out the virus in cells and make cells virus free but these treatments are still under trials.

The HIV spreads through sexual contact or blood transfusion. The spread of HIV virus can be still only prevented by following methods:    

1. Using condoms while sexual intercourse.

2. Using fresh unused syringes for injections.

3. Proper checking of donor's blood for transfusion.

4.  Avoiding multiple sexual partners.

Hope this information will clear your doubts about the HIV.
