AIDS CURE! Awww yeah.

It’s been a good 2 weeks since my World AIDS Day post and I got an overwhelming response!  72 likes!  Awesome.  I’ll be donating the $3.60 soon!  (And then some.)
I have better news that that, though.  Way better.
It was announced yesterday in Germany that a man was cured of HIV.  CURED!  According to the Huffington Post, “Doctors believe an HIV-positive man who underwent a stem cell transplant has been cured as a result of the procedure.”  The “Berlin Patient,” or Timothy Ray Brown received the transplant in 2007 as part of a leukemia treatment (he also had HIV.)  His doctors published a report after the final procedure saying that the results of the extensive stem cell testing “strongly suggest that the cure of HIV infection has been achieved.”
You guys!  This is HUGE!  This case displays a need for constructing a permanent cure for HIV through genetically-engineered stem cells.  While this doesn’t for sure mean that there is a fast-and-steady cure, it is definitely on its way!
