Hope The person was in bad condition due to cancer and HIV, but won the battle with both the diseases.


This 53-year-old man is from Düsseldorf, Germany
In 2008 he/she found out he/she was HIV positive
In 2013, he/she had a stem cell-assisted bone marrow transplant.

Paris: Scientists engaged in finding a cure for HIV are now seeming to be successful in their efforts. But having cancer along with HIV is full of risk, because both the diseases are fatal. On Monday, a patient from Germany was diagnosed who had both HIV and cancer for years, but he/she has now completely recovered. In a study on Monday, it was told that a patient suffering from HIV and cancer has been cured by the new technique.

According to the report of the news agency AFP, this 53-year-old man is from Düsseldorf, Germany. In 2008, he/she came to know that he/she is HIV positive. Then only after 3 years he/she got blood cancer, which was identified as acute myeloid leukemia. In 2013, he/she had a bone marrow transplant with the help of stem cells. This was possible because of a female donor. The woman’s CCR5 mutation gene prevented the disease from spreading through the body. This is a rare gene, which prevents HIV from spreading in cells. This person’s antiretroviral therapy for HIV was stopped in 2018. Tested continuously for 4 years, but showed no signs of HIV returning.

Canada AIDS Conference: Fourth person cured of HIV, is it possible to cure the disease now?

The name of the patient has not been made public yet, but he/she is very happy after recovering. he/she first thanked his/her female donor and told the team of doctors around the world that I am proud of all of you, who were successful in curing my cancer and HIV. The recoveries of two more people with HIV and cancer were announced at separate scientific conferences last year, although research on those cases has yet to be published.
