Researchers in Oregon said they may have discovered a potential breakthrough in HIV/AIDS research.

According to researchers from Oregon Health and Science University, an experimental vaccine appears to have entirely cleared a form of the HIV virus in primates. They said the experiment suggests the new vaccine may have the ability to completely remove HIV from the body.

There is currently no cure for the disease, but health officials said research has improved drastically. People began learning about AIDS when it was first discovered in the early 1980's. Health officials said there has been a huge emphasis on medial research and preventive behavior ever since then.

Dr. Charles Christen is the Executive Director of the Pittsburgh AIDS Task Force. He said, "Biomedical prevention along with behavioral health interventions are going to significantly reduce the number of new infections for HIV."

The researchers of this new study said they're hopeful they'll see the same results in humans.
