Did Adult Stem Cells Cure an AIDS Patient??

An American with HIV (and leukemia) living in Berlin seems to have been cured of the disease after a bone marrow transplant:

Dr. Gero Huetter said his 42-year-old patient, an American living in Berlin who was not identified, had been infected with the AIDS virus for more than a decade. But 20 months after undergoing a transplant of genetically selected bone marrow, he no longer shows signs of carrying the virus.

“We waited every day for a bad reading,” Huetter said.

It has not come. Researchers at Berlin’s Charite hospital and medical school say tests on his bone marrow, blood and other organ tissues have all been clean.

Now, nowhere in the article do they actually mention adult stem cells, but it is a well known fact that the “primary ingredients”, so to speak, in a bone marrow transplant are the stem cells from the transplanted bone marrow. I can only assume that this transplant is no different.

The successful result of the transplant in treating the AIDS virus here has been a shock to most doctors and scientists who still warn that it could be a “fluke.” If it is authentic, however, chalk this up to yet another example (and a major one) of ASCs blowing ESCs out of the water when it comes to therapies and cures.
