Summary
California man, Paul Edmonds, is in remission from both HIV and acute myelogenous leukemia after a stem cell transplant. The fifth person known globally to achieve this, the 68-yr old is also the oldest and has lived with HIV the longest (31 years). Edmonds received stem cells with a rare mutation that confers HIV resistance; it replaced his with the donor's cells. Doctors consider him cured of leukemia and possibly HIV if he remains off antiretroviral therapy for another two years.
