To perform a stem cell transplant, doctors intentionally destroy a patient's immune system, leaving the patient vulnerable to infection...

"The patient is fine," said Dr. Gero Hutter of Charite Universitatsmedizin Berlin in Germany. "Today, two years after his transplantation, he is still without any signs of HIV disease and without antiretroviral medication."

"Man appears free of HIV after stem cell transplant"

Cool article. I get a boner every time I hear the words "gene therapy" so this article gave me one. I hope that gene therapy improves because I'm fucking sick of pharmaceuticals. Sure it's cheaper and more effective right now, but why keep applying mosquito repellent when you can just kill the bugs?
