The only other documented case of an HIV cure to date remains that of Timothy Brown, the so-called “Berlin patient.” In 2006, while on treatment for HIV, Mr. Brown was diagnosed with leukemia. His physician was able to treat his leukemia with a stem-cell transplant from a person who was born with a genetic mutation causing immunity to HIV infection. Following the transplant, Mr. Brown was able to stop HIV treatment without experiencing a return of his HIV disease.
This new case points to the tantalizing possibility that different populations of HIV-positive people might be cured in different ways. While Mr. Brown’s case was the outcome of a complex, high-risk, and expensive series of procedures, this new case appears to have been the direct result of a comparatively inexpensive course of antiretroviral therapy.
