Dong-Pyou Han, who was a researcher at Iowa State University,has been jailed for pretending to have found a potential vaccine for HIV.

Han who resigned as Assistant Professor of Biomedical Sciences in 2013, after admitting that he had falsified his research, even mixing human antibodies with rabbit blood samples to make it appear more effective, was charged with falsifying HIV vaccine research, was sentenced to four and a half years behind bars, and ordered to repay more than $7.2 million that his team received in using the fake data.

In a statement, a US attorney for the southern district of Iowa,remaked: "Just because somebody has a PhD, just because someone's involved in the scientific community, doesn't mean they're going to necessarily be treated differently than anyone else who's committed a criminal offence."

North Korea also recently reported a miracle cure for HIV, claiming its Supreme Leader Kim Jong-Un had somehow advised scientists to find the cure for AIDS, cancer and Ebola

The Korean Central News Agency made the claim, asserting that Jung-Un's scientists had developed a miracle drug, known as Kumdang-2, from ginseng, a plant.
