AIDS cure from adult stem-cell treatment?

Catholic World News - December 14, 2010

The experimental treatment, given in 2007, used stem cells taken from the bone marrow of an adult donor. After presenting a study of the case at a conference in 2008 and performing additional follow-up tests, researchers now say: "It is reasonable to conclude that cure of HIV infection has been achieved in this patient."
