First HIV-Positive Man Cured With Stem Cell Treatment

Not that SRK would particularity care…

I mean thats great news right? Hopefully in a few years we can all be whores without an ounce of remorse. Too bad my aunt wasnt around for this.

if this is true and not wildly exaggerated, it’s pretty damn awesome

Well in theory it makes sense. HIV is transmitted through the blood and leukemia is cancer of the bone tissue so if you take out all the bone material that promotes the creation of new infected blood and replace it with blood producing matter [stem cell transplant] then the new blood created is essentially hiv free.

i got my hopes up when nasa announced it discovered an arsenic based life form only to have my hopes dashed when i went to dawkin’s and pz meyer’s sites.

so similarly, i will withhold any opinion until i see what the scientists have to say. media have a tendency to overhype shit.

Where’s weeks when you need to say a standard SRK slogan:

“I’m with Fishjie on this one.”

This is how the zombie apocalypse starts.

…AIDS isn’t the only sexually transmitted disease

If it’s true, wonder how cheap it will be lol

helloooo i am legend

Damn, that news just made my day. :amazed:

And a semi relevant video on the subject of Stem Cell Treatment for you to enjoy. =3


From the tiny medical report included with the article, it doesn’t sound like they “cured” the person of the virus(as in the virus is still inside of him) but they managed to replicate immune system cells(it said CD4 T-Cells), which allows his body to effectively fight off disease.

Unless I interpreted it wrong, that’s the story…

EDIT: Which means viruses are still incurable and no extremely huge breakthrough took place imo… well no more aids symptoms I guess…

that does it

i’m gonna fuck all those skanky bitches downtown I keep seeing but am afraid to fuck for fear of penis fall off syndrome

Do not be misled by that Will Smith atrocity. I Am Legend is NOT about zombies.

Uh, the zombie one was I Am Omega. Will’s was about a cancer cure mutating people into super-strong, fast, animalistic predators.

From what I’m reading this isn’t a practical treatment at all. You have to find someone with the genetic mutation (1/1000 people) and they have to be a suitable donor for you which is very unlikely.

They were vampires!

Not zombies!

GET IT RIGHT. And it was a good movie, Will Smith is the goddamned man.

Either way, what have we learned? Super Cures tend to cause apocalyptic nightmares. Get the Shotguns ready.

Super Magic Johnson for 3!!! OOOOH he took a bite out of the the ref’s shoulder!

Its currently the only one that kills you.

“you have AIDS” = cry

“you have herpes” = awww. that sucks. whos up for taco bell?

Riding that bandwagon too. :coffee:

fuck will smith and fuck that terrible remake of a Charlton Heston classic. Seriously, his ending at least had feeling…fuck the new one
and fuck Will smith again

fuck him till he gets aids, then cure it apparantly

edit: no “Dr B’s sperm cures AIDS” from Specs? That boy doesn’t lurk properly :frowning:
