"An American man who suffered from AIDS appears to have been cured of the disease 20 months after receiving a targeted bone marrow transplant normally used to fight leukemia, his doctors said."

I just thought I'd post this as I found it very interesting and promising. If they can possibly find a cure for AIDS through genetic testing and whatnot, that would be amazing! And it makes me hopeful for the things they might be able to do for us someday as well.
