Toronto, June 22 (IANS) In a major breakthrough for AIDS cure, Canadian scientists have finally found where the HIV virus hides in the human body to become impervious to medical treatment.

This breakthrough could pave the way for a total cure of the deadly disease, claim the scientists who carried out the study with researchers from the US.

The current anti-viral treatment for HIV patients can only subdue, not eliminate, the virus as it hides somewhere to lie low and then attack the system again.

Till now, scientists conjectured that the AIDS virus might be hiding in the kidneys or the brain.

But now the Canadian researchers claim that they have discovered the safe havens where the virus hides in the human body.
