There have many claims made by many people on how to cure HIV best but one way has been proven to at least cure the disease, following a trial in Britain. Following the cure of the infamous Berlin Patient by stem cell transplant, doctors in Britain have replicated and treated a London patient with a similar method and he has shown no sign of the virus since.

While the doctors say it is too early to make the final call, they are hopeful the man is cured. Professor Eduardo Olavarria of Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust and Imperial College London, said:

“While it is too early to say with certainty that our patient is now cured of HIV, and doctors will continue to monitor his condition, the apparent success of stem cell transplantation offers hope in the search for a long-awaited cure for HIV/AIDS.”  The London patient was given stem cells from a donor who is genetically resistant to the disease.”

The study’s lead author Professor Ravindra Gupta said:

“By achieving remission in a second patient using a similar approach, we have shown that the Berlin Patient was not an anomaly, and that it really was the treatment approaches that eliminated HIV in these two people.”

“At the moment the only way to treat HIV is with medications that suppress the virus, which people need to take for their entire lives, posing a particular challenge in developing countries.”

“Finding a way to eliminate the virus entirely is an urgent global priority, but is particularly difficult because the virus integrates into the white blood cells of its host.”
