HIV Patient Cured

Doctors in Germany say a patient appears to have been cured of HIV by a bone marrow transplant from a donor who had a genetic resistance to HIV.

The result is expected to encourage further interest in gene therapy as a treatment for Aids.

Roughly one in 1,000 Europeans and Americans have an inherited genetic mutation, which prevents HIV from attaching itself to cells.
Fabulously good news for today.
