Health: Could There Be A Cure For AIDS?


DOCTORS SAY A MARROW TRANSPLANT COULD’VE CURED AIDS

It has been reported that an American man who has suffered from AIDS is no longer showing symptoms / signs of having AIDS, 20 months after a bone marrow transplant that is normally used to fight off leukemia. However, doctors are being extremely cautious and are still uncertain because it’s not proven long term and hasn’t had extensive study done yet.

Yahoo reports: Dr. Gero Huetter said 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.
