Help Spread The Word, Share Post:

A woman who underwent a stem cell transplant to cure her HIV infection has remained virus-free for five years, according to a report on Live Science.

The patient, who was diagnosed with leukemia and HIV, received the transplant from a donor with a rare genetic mutation that provides resistance to HIV.

This groundbreaking procedure, also used to cure the “Berlin Patient” and the “London Patient,” offers hope for long-term HIV remission and potential future treatments.

However, researchers caution that stem cell transplants are not a viable solution for all HIV patients due to the high risks and costs involved.
