Management of HIV/AIDS

An HIV-positive man, identified as "the London patient", is the second known adult worldwide cleared of the HIV virus after a bone marrow transplant from an HIV-resistant donor. He has been in remission from HIV for 18 months and is no longer taking HIV drugs.

The patient has shown no sign of the virus for nearly 19 months since having the treatment.
