Lot of 🎉🎊🥂 about #HIVcure with bone marrow transplant; brief tweetorial on how this works and why we won't be doing #BMT for #HIV anytime soon (thread 👇) 1/ H.I.V. Is Reported Cured in a Second Patient, a Milestone in the Global AIDS Epidemic
An H.I.V. patient is said to have been cured for just the second time. The success may guide scientists to a new strategy for ending AIDS.
BREAKING: H.I.V. Is Reported Cured in a Second Patient, a Milestone in the Global AIDS Epidemic
For only the second time since the beginning of the AIDS epidemic, a patient with HIV is reported to be cured. ⁦
H.I.V. Is Reported Cured in a Second Patient, a Milestone in the Global AIDS Epidemic
First there was the "Berlin patient." Now a second man, the "London patient," appears to have been cured of H.I.V., the virus that causes AIDS.
Second person ever to be cured of #HIV: The London patient told me he was "overwhelmed" by the possibility. #hivcure
H.I.V. Is Reported Cured in a Second Patient, a Milestone in the Global AIDS Epidemic - ⁦⁩ This case will be presented tomorrow morning at #CROI2019 and I will be able to comment more then.
#HIV Is Reported Cured in a Second Patient, a Milestone in the Global #AIDS Epidemic, by via #globalhealth
Today, board welcomes the promising news of a second person who is potentially cured of #HIV. Each targeted success provides an opportunity to advance our learning that one day may lead to a #cure.
I don’t know about you but I needed this good news. H.I.V. Is Reported Cured in a Second Patient
"Both milestones resulted from bone-marrow transplants given to infected patients. But the transplants were intended to treat cancer in the patients, not #HIV."
The response to HIV has often been based in a lack of sound medical science, as well as bias towards LGBTQ people, immigrants, and people of color. While we celebrate this advancement, let's not forget the laws that make it a crime to live with HIV.
For just the second time in history, a patient appears to have been cured of HIV. This is a huge win for the fight to #endAIDS, but we can’t stop now.
First there was the "Berlin patient." Now a second man, the "London patient," appears to have been cured of H.I.V., the virus that causes AIDS.
Sometimes it's nice to emerge from the cesspool of politics and realize that humanity is capable of stunning things when we put our minds to it.
Although bone-marrow transplantation may not be a realistic “cure for HIV” this case study shows that there’s hope.
This is fantastic news!
Encouraging news in the fight to #EndAIDS.
H.I.V. Is Reported Cured in a Second Patient; Not a practical treatment, but confirms the protective effects of a CCR5 mutation when provided via a bone marrow transplant for lymphoma
You have to be extremely cynical to see this as anything other than wonderful news. 1.2 million Americans have HIV, 15% of them unaware of their infection.

what a time to be alive 🙏
A big step in the quest to make AIDS History.
Nearly 12 years to the day after the first known patient was cured, a second patient is reported to have been cured of infection with #HIV, the virus that causes #AIDS. 👉
Amazing, the science of innovation... H.I.V. Is Reported Cured in a Second Patient, a Milestone in the Global AIDS Epidemic via
Like the #BerlinPatient over a decade ago, the #LondonPatient now has a donor's bone marrow that produces cells that lack the little tags that HIV latches on to when trying to infect a cell. HIV can however remain dormant in other parts. We are hopeful.

Researchers at 's ICISTEM report that a stem cell transplant patient in London has not experienced #HIV rebound after 18 months off treatment, the longest period of time since the "Berlin Patient".
As my colleague Mike McCune says, “These are dreams, right? [...] These dreams are motivated by cases like this — it helps us to imagine what might be done in the future.” Exciting news in the fight against #HIV.

Scientists have long tried to duplicate the procedure that led to the first long-term remission from HIV 12 years ago. They seem to have succeeded.
After the Berlin patient...the London patient. Again with a selected #BMT donor. But 2 "cured" patients in 12 years does not seem a big success in #HIV #epidemic H.I.V. Is Reported Cured in a Second Patient, a Milestone in the Global AIDS Epidemic
