Adult Stem Cells May Have Cured AIDS?

Embryonic stem cells cure nothing and cause myriad problems, not the least of which is killing people to extract them.

For some time the action has been in the field of adult stem cells, even if regularly ignored by the media and government in the never ending pursuit of abortion rights, no matter the cost. But if this story is true, there will be no ignoring it. The Big Kahuna...

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS 5) — A 45-year-old man now living in the Bay Area may be the first person ever cured of the deadly disease AIDS, the result of the discovery of an apparent HIV immunity gene.

Timothy Ray Brown tested positive for HIV back in 1995, but has now entered scientific journals as the first man in world history to have that HIV virus completely eliminated from his body in what doctors call a “functional cure.”

Brown was living in Berlin, Germany back in 2007, dealing with HIV and leukemia, when scientists there gave him a bone marrow stem cell transplant that had astounding results.

“I quit taking my HIV medication the day that I got the transplant and haven’t had to take any since,” said Brown, who has been dubbed “The Berlin Patient” by the medical community.

Brown’s amazing progress continues to be monitored by doctors at San Francisco General Hospital and at the University of California at San Francisco medical center.

“I’m cured of HIV. I had HIV but I don’t anymore,” he said, using words that many in the scientific community are cautiously clinging to.

Scientists said Brown received stem cells from a donor who was immune to HIV. In fact, about one percent of Caucasians are immune to HIV. Some researchers think the immunity gene goes back to the Great Plague: people who survived the plague passed their immunity down and their heirs have it today.
Amazing. Hopeful.

Yes, stop the franken-research using human beings for sacrifice.

Let's pray that this is true and that they will also soon find a cure for cancer via adult stem cells, thus virtually eliminating any reason for continuing to pursue ESCR (even though it has been proven time and time again that ESCR causes cancer). Thanks for the encouraging news!

Well, we're going to have to hunt down that 1% of caucasians and put them in gulags so we can harvest their stem cells to give to AIDS patients.

It's not right that they keep this benefit to themselves. It should be for all humanity!

Wonderful news!

@Wayne: Telling this wonderful news, I am told that there is already a cure for cancer that won't be released for financial reasons.

@Tony: The people who are immune to the plague have informed consent to give, as all sovereign persons must give to sacrifice for their brethren. It is a privilege and a cross. Consent and acknowledgment of their personhood is denied to embryonic persons whose souls are created by our Creator and willed by God, the Father into existence and endowed with unalienable rghts. These adult stem cells are organs donated in the proper spirit and are going a long way to advance science and the cure of a deadly disease visited on the children of sufferers.

Mary,

What if they don't want to donate their stem cells? Don't the AIDS patients have the right to life? Doesn't their right to life trump the right of ownership of a sovereign person's body?

Mary De Voe said...

A sovereign person's body belongs with the sovereign person's soul. If the person will not consent to donate his body parts, they cannot not be forcefully stolen from him as is done with every embryonic stem cell stolen from an embryonic sovereign person. The embryonic sovereign person must be given time to mature to be able to give informed sovereign consent to donate body parts.This legally would at the age of eighteen years or emancipation. With trust in Divine Providence.
