GENEVA: HIV is considered a lethal syndrome and its complete cure is yet to be discovered.

However, due to the extreme efforts of savants, they have discovered a novel modus operandi called kick and kill to combat HIV.

According to details, the academics have been searching for the ways to remove the reservoirs where the virus conceals.

Fortunately, the said technique could potentially rouse hidden virus cells while slaying them through an innovative molecule.

Eliminating the reservoir cells could eradicate some or the entire HIV virus from the infected people.

In this connection, pundits from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in the US elaborated saying that the latest treatment is a sort of prescription namely antiretroviral therapy, which also pushes down the odds of transferring the deadly virus from one person to another.

This experiment has been conducted on animals and the results are promising in kicking out the virus from the infected ones.

Presently, the anti-AIDS drugs are extremely effectual at making HIV untraceable while letting its victims live longer and healthier life span.

However, if a person stops treatment, the virus spikes and imitates in the body, making the immune system weaker and surging the menace of infections or cancers that can kill the patient ultimately.

LAHORE: CJP while hearing a suo motu case against the Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC) said today that the NAB would investigate alleged corruption in the organisation.

An assistant pharmacist who claimed she was wrongfully removed from her position at the PIC brought the matter to the attention of the court earlier.

A two judge bench led by CJP Mian Saqib Nisar today held the first hearing of a suo motu case regarding the matter at the Lahore registry.

The CJP lambasted Punjab government and PIC officials over the appointment of PIC board member Afzal Bhatti ─ who also holds a post as the commissioner of the Overseas Pakistanis Commission Punjab ─ asking how a dual national was designated commissioner and a board member of the PIC.

CJP Nisar also asked Bhatti how much his salary was, to which the latter replied that it was Rs550,000 a month. The CJP observed that the provincial chief secretary only earned Rs180,000 a month. “What makes you so special?” he wondered.

Adviser to the Chief Minister Khawaja Hasan, Punjab Health Minister Khawaja Salman Rafique and PIC head Nadeem Hayat Malik also appeared in court today.

“How did all this happen in your presence?” the CJP asked Hasan. “I am sorely tempted to summon the chief minister and show him these proceedings.”

The CJP also asked Khawaja Salman Rafique to keep noting “whatever is happening in the Health Ministry”.

KARACHI: During summers, our hair tend to stay greasy too often. In order to avoid oily scalp, people tend to wash their heads on a daily basis. However, this approach is marring their hair.

So how can we keep our hair shiny, healthy and dry in summers? Newspakistan.tv will guide you appropriately in this article.

  • Wash your scalp and roots

Individuals often do the mistake of washing the ends of their hair only while avoiding the scalp and roots, resulting into having oily hair. Therefore, always massage your scalp and roots and then wash the ends.

  • Leave’em be

In order to look smart, people tend to style their hair via straighteners and blow dry, which in return makes hair oily. So, leave your hair as it is.

  • Clean the hairbrush

Hairbrushes harbor dead skin and other debris, which, on combing, diffuse those through the hair. Therefore, keep your brushes and combs clean.

  • Stop playing with’em

Folks particularly girls tend to play with their hair sans knowing the fact that this habit could make them greasy and oily so avoid playing with’em.

  • Pick up natural products

Don’t listen to the bogus claims of the big brands as such products are stuffed with chemicals. Always pick out natural shampoos.

  • Apply coconut oil

Oiling in summers sounds bizzare. However, this essential oil could chip-in towards making your hair nourish and healthy from root to ends while eliminating oil from the scalp.
