AIDS Stem Cell Study Breakthrough



    There is an incredible medical breakthrough being reported in the fight against AIDS and HIV.

    Doctors in Berlin studied an HIV-positive man who underwent a stem cell transplant and who is now cured as a result of the procedure.

    The Huffington Post has the report and the speculation about what it could mean for AIDS patients around the world.

    There is a Bay Area company running a clinical trial that is based on the finding of the Berlin case.

    Basically, Quest Clinical Research is working on a gene therapy to stop HIV from spreading in an infected person.
