AIDS cured in at least one patient

Rare Treatment Is Reported to Cure AIDS Patient

Out of Berlin's Charité Hospital comes the news that a leukemia/AIDS patient has been AIDS free for 20 months after a risky bone marrow transplant provided to him by a lucky person who is immune to the virus.

Of course only time will tell if the disease is truly at bay, but 20 months is a long time.

Stem cells... who would have thought?!
Maybe stem cells are not as evil as everyone says.
MAYBE America should stop these antiquated views and begin seriously working with them again.

The article says that they've tried this before, without good results.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. IF they cure AIDS, it will crush a multi-billion dollar industry. Maybe this is why you have Dr. Robert Gallo (one of many men making a fortune and fueling his ego from this disease) saying that he would rather take his chances with antiretrovirals.
