Adult Stem Cells may cure AIDS.

I recall questioning recently how embryonic stem cell research could help rebuild the immune systems of AIDS patients, when embryos have no immune systems.

Well, now a story is published about a 42-year-old man with both HIV and leukemia who is apparently HIV-free after being injected with (ahem, adult) stem cells from a donor who has a gene that is believed to create HIV immunity.
