Do you have any news follow up for the story of the English man who cured from HIV last november? I knew he refused to do further testing, but is that still the case?
Response from Dr. Young
Thanks for your post.
The last I've heard was from November 2005 from the BBC...
He has not come in for further testing to date.
So, a case of eradication certainly give reason for hope, but 1 in 43 million is a astronomically long shot for now, unless we get more information as to the medical basis for Mr. Stimpson's case. BY
