Researchers in Germany are reporting that they may have cured a man of HIV infection. If true, that would represent a scientific advance, but not necessarily a treatment advance, said researchers familiar with the work.



www.cnn.com...

Sort of. Of course other researchers have to chime in and explain why this is not really good news at all for their own such and such reasons, immediately pooping all over the party.

Interesting read though and hopefully good news for the future of medicine wordlwide.

It was just a matter of time like all diseases.
Plus funding is hard to get when these diseases no longer get the headlines.
Great news for the world!

Now lets see what other bio-engineered disease tptb throw into the pot for all of us to freak out over.

Big Pharm doens't like it because you can only charge once for a cure.

They're not making billions of the meds anymore if they cure people.

You said AIDs, the article says HIV.

Which is it?

Nothing really supprising with stem cells.

the article says HIV infections so its that. But HIV infections causes AIDS so it is big news for both HIV and AIDS.

Right, AIDS is a disease caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

You know what, nevermind. You're right I'll change it.

Its too bad that you would have to essentially replace an entire immune system to cure someone. How nice for big pharma though.

The donor had the CCR5 gene "delta 32"

en.wikipedia.org...

In some parts of the world its very rare and in others its a lot more common.

Its more common in the UK as this was a area hard hit by the Black Death in the middle ages

I wish i knew more because this gene is also being studied because of its actions in disease Sarcoidosis.
there is research that people with the CCR5 delta 32 gene have more severe cases of Sarcoidosis
www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov...
jac.oxfordjournals.org...

I have Sarcoidosis

The Donor....


The donor's stem cells contained a rare, inherited gene mutation that made them naturally resistant to infection with HIV....


We need to clone this dude.

His stem cells have trouble with cancer, but they dominate the aids when they're around.

Hopefully the Team, and the guy who go cured are in great protection because its only a matter of time before they die in a car crash, or get mugged. Its so sad. We need these cures but people are too selfish and want things their way for this to go mainstream and help everyone.
