The world’s first cured AIDS patient with cancer recurrence

Timothy Ray Brown, 54, the world’s first cured AIDS patient, has started hospice care because of cancer recurrence, AP reported recently.

in 2006, Timothy, who suffered from AIDS, was diagnosed with leukemia. Then he received bone marrow transplantation carrying CCR5 gene in Berlin. The first bone marrow transplantation did not completely cure his leukemia, but the HIV he carried gradually began to disappear.

in 2008, he underwent a second transplant operation, which not only cured his leukemia, but also completely cured AIDS. Timothy became the world’s first cured case of AIDS, which is also known as the Berlin patient. Focus
