Research on the cellular level by Dr. Sekaly. Clinical Trials to begin at Martin Health Systems at Tradition

The battle against aids is underway at The Center For Innovation at Tradition in Port St. Lucie Florida. The major players are Torrey Pines, Mann Institute, VGTI, Martin Memorial Hospital Systems and a network of researchers in Florida at various Universities and hospitals.

Torrey Pines opened in 2008 and began research to create new molecules to test for the HIV/AIDS cure. Rafick-Pierre Sekaly, PhD is the codirector and scientific director at Torrey Pines made a groundbreaking discovery. He found that the AIDS virus hides in cells when antiviral medicine is given to a patient.

Richard Houghton, of Vaccine and Gene Therapy developed a method of creating molecules 100 times more effectively which enabled Torrey Pines to produce 30-40 million compounds. These compounds are being tested to keep the virus from hiding in cells when medicine is present in the patient.

Clinical trials on his exciting discovery at Martin Health Systems new hospital at Tradition within 18 months. The cure for AIDS will come not from one lab but from a consortium.

Sekaly’s first mission in Florida was to join a network of 19 AIDS research organizations statewide to form a consortium for researchers to share information. VGTI collaborates with Torrey Pines and the Scripps Research Institute in Jupiter.

The collaberative approach of VGTI, Mann Research, and Torrey Pines, and the consortium that Sekaly formed is an innovative approach. There will not be “A cure for AIDS” by one person, it is a collaborative effort which also includes major research and university participation in the effort.

Clinical trials are normally done by pharmaceutiaal manufacturers, these trials are not. The medical community feels they are on the right track. The cure for AIDS will come not from just one lab but from a consorltium. Just imagine the day that the announcement is made that the cure and prevention for HIV/AIDS was found in Port St. Lucie, Florida at Tradition by this innovative group.

Martin Health Systems at Tradition is chugging right along.  The exterior shell is completed and work is being done to finish the inside.  All of Port St. Lucie West area is excited about the new hospital.  We will have a hospital on the West side of town!

Tradition's growth in action is a resault of all of the bio-tech and the new hospital.  Tradition has several planned communities in addition to "The Landings" with big box stores and restaurants. The Landings is anchored by a Super Target and other great stores.

What a wonderful area and we locals are all very excited about the growth!
