The Wall Street Journal reported that an American woman recovered from AIDS, becoming the fourth person in the world to recover from the virus.
The newspaper drew attention to the fact that the patient, who developed leukemia 4 years after being diagnosed with HIV, has not received antiretroviral treatment since October 2020.
He added that the treatment was done by transplanting stem cells from a relative with a rare genetic mutation that prevents the virus from multiplying, and that he received a cord blood transplant from a newborn baby.
He emphasized that this is the fourth case in the world to achieve a medical victory over the disease.
Doctors expressed optimism about the patient’s recovery, and treating doctor Marshall Gillespie said: “Everything looks very encouraging.”
American Timothy Ray Brown was the first person to be treated for immunodeficiency in 2007, but died of cancer in 2020.
Doctors also managed to defeat the virus in two patients in London and Dusseldorf.
