  2. Might that be the step to a cure for everybody? I personally believe it was rather luck that the stem cells helped him get rid of HIV.

  3. "In fact, about one percent of Caucasians are immune to HIV."

    So find these super humans, harvest their marrow, cure HIV everywhere! Cool.

  4. I hear this happen time to time. I think that as medical advances increase and there are more people who carry the gene that makes them immune to HIV (this will taken even more time of course), HIV and AIDS will become something that is little more than a pain in the ass.
