Second person in history reportedly cured of AIDS virus

Reports suggest a man in London is the second person ever to be cured of the HIV virus after he received a bone-marrow transplant. As per the journal Nature, the man, not identified, was diagnosed with HIV in 2003. He later developed cancer and agreed to undergo a bone-marrow transplant for treatment. He stopped taking anti-HIV drugs in Sep. 2017 and has remained virus free for more than a year.

Summary for anyone who is curious: NO, this is NOT a certifiable method for curing HIV. Second, the london man was not 100% certain he has been cured and neither he or his lawyers will assert so. Third, the “cure” was just treatment for cancer, and not in geared towards the HIV diagnosis. FINALLY, the most important part, “the method has been repeated unsuccessfully on other patients”.... your welcome. Case closed!
