Bone marrow stem cells have eradicated HIV and AIDS from a man who is known in the media as the Berlin Patient. Stem cells from a man who is thought to be immune to HIV were injected into the Berlin Patient to treat his Leukemia, and it appears a miracle was performed during the surgery, and all traces of the HIV virus have vanished from his system.
Makers of powerful AIDS drugs must be dying a slow death in the wake of this news. For the first time in many, many years, an actual treatment for an illness is on the horizon, and not a pill that must be swallowed every day for the rest of eternity.
If stem cells from individuals who are immune to HIV can cure a person with AIDS, shouldn’t stem cells from individuals who do not have depression put those with Bi Polar disorder in a better mood?
Stem cells from unborn babies are potentially the cure for growing old. Imagine face lifts for the ugly and breast implants in transgendered men that look real. We must lift all bans on stem cell research immediately and begin establishing a clearing house where individuals who are immune to HIV can sell their bone marrow at AZT prices.
