In Berlin they just cured HIV with stem cells. I am hereby fucking anything that moves.

dude. you're from minnesota. your stadium collapsed, you lost farve (thank god), and now you have to play in a college stadium... i'd say you're already fucked.
what does this have to do with sex asshole?!
There's still herpes. You don't come back from that shit.
its a significant find but they stated even if they managed to make it into a working cure the cost is so extraneous that at this point most people affected by cancer/HIV would not be able to afford the treatment. gene therapy and stem cell implantation isnt cheap by any means, and these bible beaters in congress and on the streets protesting science's progress arent helping matters either.
Seriously....I effing love you. \n\nLove, \nA scientist being bible thumped.
Please, please PLEASE point this shit out to the idiotd on Capitol Hill. As for the Bible Thumpers... well... leave them to their own devices. Eventually they'll all kill each other... hopefully...
Sorta, they cured a leukemia patient and used marrow from a person who was naturally resistant to HIV (<1% of the worlds population) to replace the defective marrow. But you go ahead and rawdog it if you want, sounds like a great idea.
they did cure an actual person. the transfer was to cure his leukemia and it also cured his HIV
FAIL. The treatment he received was for leukemia. He had to go through intensive radiation, chemotherapy and then receive a bone marrow transplant. Hardly easy or cost effective. 1 in 3 people also die from this treatment. Keep wrapping it up, please.
Well since it's winter and you're in Minnesota, not much will be moving since everything is frozen.
Yup. Can't bury your sex partners until the ground thaws.

Something else will pop up to keep you in line. Nature hates whores.
Dude get off my dog
Kaaate is right. The treatment wasn't really a surprise, it was surprising that he survived the process. However, it costs way to much, requires a matching donor WITH a rare genetic condition, and has a proven high death rate meaning a large portion of patients would die YEARS before they would have on HIV meds.
Hey we survive minnesota winters so don't fuck with us.
Ohhhh tell Africa
@persnach although Canada has great health care it is by no means free. New cancer treatments are quite costly, as well as the ability to stay in private quarters of a hospital while given them, and that since we are able to do some treatments free, resources are limited to mostly just capital cities. Therefore a lot of people have to travel, give up jobs and be away from or relocate their family. We have perks, but are very very far from perfect. Don't expect to see this treatment come available to Ca
I hope the first thing you see is your grandma, who is 88 years old with a whole lot of baggage to keep her warm where you're from. oh but she has no teeth, so she probably gives killer blow.
Fuck ya! Magic Johnson is BACK!!
Ok well it only worked bc te guy got a bone marrow transplant and the donor had a genetic resistance to the virus. So if you have leukemia and HIV and have a donor with the genetics then ur golden. Aahahahha
hi Dave! (:
Keep raw dogging it. Natural selection at it's finest.
Where's the cat.
what does that have to do with sex asshole?!
What r we in the dark ages! Fuck scholasticism and start with reach!
@ StraightChilln. You're my hero.
Ur from minnesota. Very short drive to...,yup, u guessed it, CANADA!! Where if you u have an illness that will kill you (HIV), and there's a proven effective treatment available, you get it.... FOR FREE!! It's terrible that ur health care system has people DYING while people debate the COST of curing them.
I'd wait until they cure an actually person buddy...
I'd look my shit up before commenting on something I know nothing about so I don't make a complete idiot of myself...
The treatment kills 1/3 if patients. Too dangerous to make it a routine cure beside being expensive. And you need someone compatible with a rare gene mutation...
