Timothy Ray Brown Says His Body Clear of HIV Virus
July 25 (Bloomberg) -- Timothy Ray Brown, the only person in the world believed to have been cured of HIV, talks about how his body has been cleared of the virus.
Brown's HIV was wiped out after getting a bone marrow transplant in 2007 for cancer. The donor had a rare gene mutation that made the new white blood cells resistant to infection with the AIDS virus. Brown spoke yesterday at a news conference in conjunction with the International AIDS Conference in Washington. (Source: Bloomberg)
