I was just watching the news and a press conference was on with a few doctors (I'm in Germany) and it seems that they had a patient who had HIV and Leukemia. They transplanted some bone marrow (is this the correct term) with some stem cells where the DNA had some kind of mutation which provides immunity to HIV. This procedure was done around 2 years ago and the patient shows no signs of HIV since. Anyone heard of this?

I'll try to find a source. It'll be all over the news here by this evening.

there is no chance in hell that they cured aids. What are we gonna do now when some noob comes in with a medical question...tell him that he has a cold?

If that's true, than that's pretty damn amazing.

Need more conclusive proof.

It may have been a chance occurance in this patient but it doesnt mean that a bone marrow transplant will work for everyone. We need an all encompasing broad treatment that works with everyone. Not flukes.

Flukes make the baby jesus cry.

Hey, all you Bible bashers who oppose stem cell research! Feel like idiots yet?
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

Probably. Remember when they tried putting the rabies patients in comas when it was a fluke?

I'd be interested to read the source of this when you find it. However i think this is more due to chance than anything else.

In the article it says that the donor had natural mutations that made him immune to HIV.


So maybe they just clone those cells to there's a huge bank of those cells and whenever someone has HIV, maybe they do the transplant?
#31
im christian and i personally think that not researching stem cells is possibly the dumbest thing we could do, especially since there are other ways to get stem cells then abortions and even if that was the only way abortion is legal (i dont agree with it but it is) so we might as well get some good out of it.


and if they cure HIV it will be a glorious day for everybody who may have gotten some of that strange puss on a drunken night

The "cure" was bone marrow transplants from a donor with an immunity to HIV. Good luck finding a continuous supply of that.

It's actually found in more than one patient. If you read further, there are people with natural mutations in the CCR5 molecule which prevents the HIV from getting into the cells.


And even if it was one person, it's possible to make it in a lab. They grew a liver in a lab (I believe?).
