    Ironically, the last name of the female doctor involved is "Gay." What are the odds of that?

    This is uncork the champagne time fellas. God Bless the innocent babies born with HIV every year and this one child's experience and treatment might lead to some or all of these innocents living free of HIV.

    Moreover .... that this case will lead to a cure for everyone.

    YES! Another milestone toward eradicating this hideous disease.

    I was watching it on on abc13 news. What irritated me they only talked about it for less than 15 second. This is a huge stepping stone, should at least deserve more air time than that.

    Ah, that's so heartwarming. One of the best things I've read in a while, lets hope more good things like this continue to happen in the world. Never lose hope/faith icon_smile.gif

    I don't think it did. There are too many uncertainties. It annoys me when drug companies publicly report findings of a first stage experiment that may take several more years to prove anything substantial. Giving hope is one thing but sometimes there is too much hope for things that really aren't proven to work yet in the long run.

    We now have two human beings that have been cured of HIV ..... and apparently very few people care enough to post or like the poster above me think it is not newsworthy.

    This thread should have titled "Rate the hotness of the guy above you and also read this cool story of how the second person in history has been cured on HIV." Truly not enough interest in this topic.

    Totally agree - this is such fantastic news, giving hope of cure as opposed to hope of survival.

    its hope nonetheless. To the people whos living with HIV, hope is all they have. A glimpse of hope is all they need.
