Stem Cell Transplant Cures HIV In German Man

Doctors in Germany believe they’ve made a pivotal medical break-through and are announcing that they’ve cured a man of HIV/AIDS.

Timothy Ray Brown, also known as the “Berlin Patient,” received a stem cell transplant in 2007 as part of a lengthy treatment course for leukemia.

Now the doctors who treated Brown have published a report in medical journal “The Blood” affirming that extensive follow-up testing “strongly suggest that cure of HIV infection has been achieved.”

Brown is the first person to ever be declared cured of HIV, and is pushing science to further the sometimes-controversial study of stem cells.

Brown, who previously stayed out of the spotlight, will cover the next issue of Stern Magazine under the headline, “The Man Who Defeated The HIV.”
