    Default Cure For Hiv

    A MAN IS CLAMING TO BE THE FIRST PERSON TO HAVE BEEN CURED FOR HIV IF
    THIS IS TRUE THEN THIS WOULD BE A MAJOR BREAK THREW ON AIDS HEAR IS THE STORY

    Briton 'Cures Himself' of HIV

    LONDON: A British man is believed to have become the first person in the world to get rid of the HIV virus, newspaper reports said yesterday.

    Andrew Stimpson, 25, was diagnosed as HIV-positive in August 2002. However, tests 14 months later showed that the virus had completely gone from his body, despite taking no medication to combat it.

    His doctors are adamant there were no mix-ups with his tests and the sandwich maker will now offer his body for medical research to help doctors in their quest to find a cure for HIV, which leads to full-blown AIDS.

    "I remember after the repeat tests my doctor came into the room saying, 'You've cured yourself! This is unbelievable, you're fantastic!'

    "It's so amazing to think that one day I was staring death in the face and now I am waving it goodbye," he told the News of the World.

    The Mail on Sunday reported that in two previous cases of "spontaneous clearance", it was impossible to prove that both the positive and negative tests came from the same person.

    On hearing of the negative tests, he considered sueing his hospital with this in mind over what he thought must have been bungled earlier tests.

    The hospital launched an investigation and Stimpson received a letter last month saying that DNA testing had confirmed it was his blood in all the samples.

    "There had been no error in the labelling or testing of the samples", it added.

    Both newspapers printed the letter from the National Health Service Litigation Authority.

    "The fact that you have recovered from a positive antibody result to a negative result is exceptional and medically remarkable," the letter read.

    "I understand the (hospital authority) Trust have written to you highlighting your importance to other HIV patients."

    Stimpson said: "I will do anything I can if it will help find a cure for HIV."

    Dr George Kinghorn, an HIV specialist from Sheffield's Royal Hallamshire Hospital, said Stimpson could provide vital clues in the battle to beat AIDS.

    "For an individual to have been infected with a virus, cleared of it and then become antibody negative is highly unusual.

    "If we can better understand what happened inside Andrew's body it could prove to be a step towards a breakthrough in beating the HIV virus."

    Stimpson, from the Scottish coast west of Glasgow, went for tests in May 2002 after feeling weak and feverish. They came back negative. However, the virus can take three months to appear in the blood after contraction.

    Tests in August that year found an exceptionally low level of HIV anti-bodies.

    Because he was in the early stages, he did not require medication, but doctors were surprised by his continuing good health.

    Repeat tests in October 2003 and ever since have come back negative.

    Bullshit

    I refuse to believe that he's HIV free. It's a virus, a quite tricky virus at that which tricks your body into accepting it as part of it's genetic makeup. There's no cure for any virus. They can't even conquer the common cold, how are they gonna cure a disease 100 times worse?

    no doctor is gonna cure it, they've had the cure as long as they've had the disease, if doctors were to vure u for HIV then what would doctors that specialize in HIV treatment do ?? nuthin because no one would have it, which means those doctors would be out of a job, and with the money they earn each year, i dont think a cure is gonna be good for them.
