At the XIX International AIDS Conference, Daniel Kuritzkes, M.D., presented a study outlining how two HIV-infected men showed no traces of the virus in their blood more than two years after receiving an autologous stem cell transplant.
The procedure differed from the one Brown received in a pivotal way: While Brown's donor cells lacked the CCR5 receptor, the primary means by which HIV attaches to CD4+ cells, the two men received donor cells that did have the CCR5 receptor and were fully susceptible to HIV. If there were no need to find a CCR5-deficient matching donor for the transplant to be successful, it would make such a procedure far more realistic.
In addition, unlike Brown, the two men remained on antiretroviral therapy during the transplant period, which is believed to be key to their immune system's ability to completely suppress viral replication.
"The importance of our findings is that we have evidence now that we can protect uninfected cells from becoming infected when they're transplanted into an HIV-infected patient, a form of PrEP at the cellular level, if you will," Kuritzkes said.

yes it does, thank you!! I have been experimenting with my 2-strand twsits lately. I sweat a lot in my scalp, so after about 6-7 days I can't take it anymore. I have to wash. I did do a co-wash while the twsits were still in. It came out very nice, and got me though another 3-4 days before I had to completely do a shampoo wash. Thank you so much for your very helpful videos and positive sweet spirit. God Bless!

Candida is a type of fungus that grows in your body. It's mcpioscoirc so you don't see it. When too much of it gets in your digestive system, you get permanent rotten breath. Go to any health food store and ask for medicine to do a candida cleanse, and you'll get it. The price is reasonable (anywhere from $10-$40) considering you won't need to buy anywhere near as much gum or tic-tacs for the rest of your life. I used to buy a huge box of tic-tacs to last only two weeks! It was hell.
