hi! What do you think of this article, Dr. Bob?

Jun 13, 2011

First Man 'functionally cured" of HIV. (Title of article).

Is this promising? And how would you know if you (or someone else) is immune? Do you think this is true..i.e..that the man is really cured?

You nay have already heard of this, for sure. But I was wondering what all of yout thoughts were on it.

Thanks!!! Thanks for everything!

Response from Dr. Frascino


Yes, the article is accurate. Check out my three-part blog "The Search for a Cure Heats Up," which can be easily accessed on The Body's blog page. We've been closely monitoring Timothy Ray Brown's story for a number of years. See link below.

Yes, this development is indeed promising! Stay tuned to The Body. We'll keep you updated as the story of a cure for HIV, be it "functional" or "viral eradication," continues to evolve. These are exciting and very hopeful times. We must keep the enthusiasm (and funding) going as we close in on a cure and eventually make HIV/AIDS nothing more than a very bad memory.

Stay tuned! Continue to advocate for HIV/AIDS awareness, prevention, treatment and cure!
