• the real news now
An HIV-positive man who underwent a stem cell transplant in 2007 has been cured as a result of the procedure. Timothy Ray Brown, also known as the "Berlin Patient," received the transplant in 2007 as part of a lengthy treatment course for leukemia. His doctors recently published a report in the journal Blood affirming the results of extensive testing which "strongly suggest that a cure of HIV infection has been achieved." Brown has now remained off HIV treatment for three-and-a-half years with normal CD4 counts and no evidence of HIV replication.
