Cure for HIV may be in sight as clinical trial using umbilical cords set to begin

Researchers in Spain could begin trial end of this year.

Finding a permanent cure for Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) has remained a stumbling block, but now, a team of doctors in Spain are up for a clinical trial that aims at finding cure for the life-threatening disease.

The clinical trial, using the transplants of blood from umbilical cords, is said to be first of its kind, and if it becomes a success, the Spanish doctors could recreate the success of Timothy Ray Brown – the only living person ever to be completely cured of HIV, known as “the Berlin patient”, according to reports.

The announcement about the clinical trial was made last week during a haematology conference in Valencia by Spain’s National Organisation of Transplants (ONT). According to ONT, it has selected 157 samples from donors who have a geneticmutation that enables them to fight HIV virus.

A press release of ONT read “The ONT and public cord blood banks identified a total of 157 units with the genetic mutation CCR5 Delta32, capable of conferring a natural immunity to AIDS.”

Brown, the lone survivor of HIV clinical trial, was an American who was diagnosed with leukemia in 2006 while he lived in Berlin. He wanted blood transplant to treat cancer and the doctors decided to find a donor with a peculiar kind of cellular mutation that can resist HIV. According to doctors who treated Brown, after he received two stem cell transplants from the donor’s bone marrow, his HIV levels decreased dramatically.

The doctors confirm that he is now completely cured of cancer and only a few traces of the HIV virus can be found on his body, but way below the level that can cause a relapse of the disease.

Even though a similar transplant was done on another cancer patient in Barcelona, he died of cancer and the doctors were unable to verify the effect of the trial in the patient.

According to ONT, the selected patients have similar disease history as Brown’s and the Barcelona patient, so that they can verify whether the success story can be replicated. They have also confirmed that the method used in the Barcelona patient would be used for the clinical trial as the doctors will transplant the umbilical cord blood into the patient instead of the stem cell that was used in the case of Brown. The clinical trial on the first patient is expected to commence in Madrid, between December and January.

  8. Greetings to you all. My name is Alexis. I’m from US. I was cured of hiv virus. I was diagnosed with this virus for the past 9 years, I came across a blog four months ago when I was browsing with my computer and I saw a series of testimonies post from people making reference to Dr. Baba Ogu on how the man used natural herbal medicine to cure them when they were suffering from HIV virus, diabetic 1&2, herpes,asthma,Gonorrhea, Barrenness, Impotence, Womb damage, High Blood Pressure,Epilepsy, etc and how he cast a spell for them to pass their exams, a spell to earn more profits on their business and so on. Some people testified that he cast a spell to bring their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb, some testified he cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. Although I did not believe them but yet I took his email address because i wanted to give it a try because i have been suffering from this virus for the past 9 years and my doctor said i have few time left to live.That’s was the main reason I emailed Dr Baba Ogu to see if he can really cure me because i don’t want to die, he responded to my mail immediately, i explained my problems to him, he promised to send me HIV herbal medicine but he later asked me to purchase the herbal medicine which I did, he gave some prescription on how to be drinking the herbs and asked me to go for test on the 4th week after drinking the herbs to confirm my status, I followed his instructions and I went for the test a month ago, the result came out negative, I did 4 test already, they all turned out to be negative. I can’t thank dr baba ogu enough, he cured me of my HIV virus. I will forever remain grateful to Dr Baba Ogu, he have all the medicine that can cure any illness you are suffering from, email him right now. Please once you are cure, also spread the good news to others so that those with illness can be cure too. Your body is the temple of Christ and not for sickness and diseases to temper with. Contact Dr Baba Ogu now on: drbabaogu@gmail.com

  10. Good day everyone, My name is Henry Adams, I’m 32yrs old, I live with the most devastating illness for the past 5years
    no, I was married and because of my illstate, my wife left me but luckingly she didnt contacted it. What am I talking about, HIV/AIDS,
    she always insisted that we should use condom because she was affraid to get it, she later left me a month after our wedding.
    I lived like a helpless animal for 6 months, I went to hospital but there was no cure for me just good healthcare. I almost lost my job
    because of my ilness. A day came when i search in the internet and met D odetokun, an African doctor that cures hiv/aids, I told him about my
    illstate and how deppinated i was to be cured. He assured me not to worry about it and prescribed the cure for me and how i would take it. It was
    just like yesterday . I want to thank Dr Odetokun for saving my life and my career. Here is his email(Drodetokun@gmail.com) and you can also contact him
    on his mobile number(+2348134594549) Thanks….

  11. Hi, it been 1 month now when i met Dr, odetokun and I have been perfectly fine. My name is Becky Smith,
    I have contacted HIV/AID since i was 21 years old and i never knew I waas HIV possitive until i went for
    a competition in my school after they tested me and found out i was possitive. They told me to back out from
    the competition. It was not even that which was suprissing both that i had contacted HIV.
    I started seeking for help in different hospital and church but there was no effective introduced response to my
    sick state. It was a friend of mine that introduse me to Dr, Odetokun who saved my life and my future. He is technique
    in healing is unique and adequate also it responds to your body perfeclty. for you to contact him and to be cured by him ,

    the next monday i went to the hospital for test and the doctor look at me surprisenly and told me i was negative. I felth
    blessed to have known him….

  12. No, a cure fo HIV is NOT ‘in sight’. The article itself is accurate, but can subs PLEASE stop using headlines implying we are getting near to a cure? This is just one step in an extremely intricate basic-science research programme that will take many years before scientists even settle on the best way to cure HIV, let alone find something effective, practical and cheap. Implying cures are around the corner only serves to spread consipracy theories and ignorance. Thanks.
