This week doctors released a report that is sure to shock and amaze the world. According to the report, two men that have been treated with a radical new bone marrow transplant procedure have essentially been cured of HIV. Doctors did not give the men bone marrow treatment as part of their HIV treatment but rather as part of a cancer treatment program, the HIV cure was a simple side effect according to those involved.
Regardless of the fact that it came about as an accident, doctors are absolutely astonished that this has worked. The men both tested 100% negative for HIV after their treatment regime and both have successfully stopped taking any and all HIV medication. This is a very significant breakthrough in the AIDS/HIV research area and many doctors are hopeful that this may some day translate into a complete treatment and cure for HIV.
Obviously there is still a lot of research to be done before this becomes a true treatment, but doctors say they are incredibly excited about the possibility. Never before has such an effective link been proven between HIV and any sort of treatment or cure. Multiple organizations are beginning follow up studies and complete research programs to try and determine how this can be made into a true treatment for HIV which is absolutely great news.
