Article 1:
- Date: Cali, March 11/2014
- Topic: Excellent gene method to cure HIV with resounding success
- Scientists have conducted gene therapy in order to cure the HIV virus by replacing the immune cells which have virus-resistant modified versions.
- Based on these tests have shown signs that have raised hopes and declaring this a success.
- This treatment has never before been tested in humans, to the replacement of some of the cells carried the defenses of individuals rose.
- The people who agreed to this test found that the resistant cell to multiply these diseases and the effects of the virus had been reduced slightly.
- Scientists are excited about the results we have obtained so far.
- This could be a great change for people with the disease and must take drugs in his life, because these procedures would not be necessary to take antiretrovirals.
- Review the Levine colleague who helped perform this action, any improvement will be welcome to health, even if the therapy had to be accompanied by existing drugs.
- Many of the people diagnosed with HIV 20 years of age should undergo lifelong treatment , but scientists avoid mentioning the word " cure" because this virus is not easy , instead seeking to improve health function .
- The therapy consists of a protein called CCR5 right to prevent HIV from their immune cells.
- The therapy was implemented with the participation of 10 men and two women aged between 31 and 54 years, where absolutely everyone had been diagnosed with HIV about 23 years ago or so.
- They did white cell collection from each of the patients, and then involved the use of a gene called editing process which serves to modify cells, thereby making people to be resistant to HIV.
- By doing this procedure six patients were withdrawn from medication, so that the injected cells were outside the virus down.
- 2 patients were forced to relapse into drug use by the fact that their level of HIV came back up quickly, while the remaining four showed remarkable improvements.
- In a patient HIV levels fell so that even they were not detected in the diagnostic tests.
- Patients fared better with the modified cells with modified immune cells, because they were more resistant to the virus.
- The modified cells fall over time, only some can last several years.
- Scientists plan to change or genetically modified immune cells of patients to be resistant to most diseases.
- In the case of one patient Timothy Brown received bone marrow transplantation in order to treat leukemia; this process is carried out by the intervention of a donor who rarely made resistant to HIV immune cells.
- A bone marrow transplant is a risky operation, which cannot be put into practice in all individuals suffering from HIV.
- One of the major shortcomings of the latter therapy is that patients continue to produce the normal immune cells, which causes the HIV virus infecting again achieved.
- An analysis of the World Health Organization estimated that in 2012 at least 35.3 million people worldwide were infected.
- A last treatment, which also had some disadvantages, where I present reactions in patients such as fever headache, chills, muscle and joint pain was performed.
- The body odor of the patients takes the smell of garlic
- Mr. St George in London says that any method that does not require drug in patients is a serious competitor.
- The team aims to keep doing these tests to other patients but larger and thus pass the benefits of testing different doses.
- Geneticist George Church at Harvard University, argues that it is very important that the issue shows that genes can be used to help large sections of the city .
- Work continues on this in this order to achieve a more precise genetic modification of human cells.

Article 2:
* Date: Cali, March 11/2014
* Topic: False detection mechanism of the HIV virus backed by the army of Egypt.

Summary: - A general in the army of Egypt took a controversial decision, as is to proclaim wands that supposedly cure the HIV virus and hepatitis c.
- This was nothing more than a device that functioned as a fake bomb detector, this being a complete and total scam.
- A British man named James McCormick, trying to trade some of these items , was arrested and sentenced to 10 years for fraud , this being a device connected to television antennas.
- He was imprisoned by the fact that Iraq was trying to negotiate with selling counterfeit detectors called “ADE651 “valued at $ 50 million.
- According to Dan Kaszeta, staff a real factory of bomb detectors says these are reiterating at least two decades ago.

* Questions:
1. Which are the differences between these two articles?
R / / That the first focuses on giving all methods that have been carried out to cure HIV genetically modified immune cells of patients, which makes the level of AIDS decreases, while the second article focuses on a scam and a shameful fact for the army to support a device that supposedly cure HIV and it was just a gimmick to assembly to TV antennas.
2. Which are the scientific bases of the Egyptians?
R// the same military bases
3. Which is the procedure who can really do something? Explain why
R// Article # 1 The technique can actually contribute to the cure of this disease is gene therapy which involves the modification of immune cells, to avoid drug to combat HIV, as these cells will be able to withstand the disease up finish.

Very Good 5

Las palabras son sólo piedras puestas atravesando la corriente de un río. Si están allí es para que podamos llegar al otro margen, el otro margen es lo que importa.

"Si tú tienes una manzana y yo tengo una manzana y las intercambiamos, entonces ambos aún tendremos una manzana. Pero si tú tienes una idea y yo tengo una idea y las intercambiamos, entonces ambos tendremos dos ideas."
