Default Man cured of hiv!

This is amazing.... why didnt they think of this before? Sounds like it happened on accident, but now it would seem that scientists could just duplicate this gene thats in 1% of caucasians

I see 1% of Caucasians having some very lucrative tissue. You know this operation is a leading edge ultra expensive operation. While research spins towards this only the very rich will be getting a "cure". And one that can still be fatal in itself.

i understand that, but with knowledge of HOW to cure, we can use stem cell research or clone this gene i would imagine, and in the future should become cheaper.... Kinda how Henry ford invented the assembly line and the Tin Lizzy for the "Everyday working man"

This is ceratinly a step in the right direction, but it will take a long time before it gets to the point where it will be available to the average person.
