It sounds unbelievable, but a HIV positive person has claimed to be cured of the deadly virus. Timothy Ray Brown, also known as the "Berlin Patient" is believed by doctors to be cured after a stem-cell transplant as part of an aggressive chemotherapy program. According to The Huffington Post:
"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 that the results of extensive testing "strongly suggest that cure of HIV infection has been achieved."
Brown's case paves a path for constructing a permanent cure for HIV through genetically-engineered stem cells."
While it's understandable that most people living with HIV would opt out of such an aggressive, potentially deadly form of treatment, this is an incredible breakthrough. Watch a CNN report below:
