It's a shocking story, especially since this guy went in a for a leukemia treatment. With a little more research, this could turn out to be huge!

AIDS Patient Reportedly Cured


    BERLIN An American man who suffered from AIDS appears to have been cured of the disease 20 months after receiving a targeted bone marrow transplant normally used to fight leukemia, his doctors said.

    While researchers _ and the doctors themselves _ caution that the case might be no more than a fluke, others say it may inspire a greater interest in gene therapy to fight the disease that claims 2 million lives each year. The virus has infected 33 million people worldwide.

    Dr. Gero Huetter said Wedneday his 42-year-old patient, an American living in Berlin who was not identified, had been infected with the AIDS virus for more than a decade. But 20 months after undergoing a transplant of genetically selected bone marrow, he no longer shows signs of carrying the virus.

    "We waited every day for a bad reading," Huetter said.

    It has not come. Researchers at Berlin's Charite hospital and medical school say tests on his bone marrow, blood and other organ tissues have all been clean.


I'll be keeping an eye on this story with a skeptic's eye, but there just might be some good news ahead in the fight against AIDS.

Fun fact: the Delta 32 mutation is found in those of European descent due to it originally giving partial or full immunity to the Black Plague.

I'm pretty sure not one of the side effects of either HIV or the Black Plague is that they are less likely to refuse such an offer from One Justin Shapiro, though.
