British man could be first cured by new HIV therapy

(KMOV.com) Doctors say a British man could become the first to be cured of HIV by using new therapy.

If the trial is successful, it could be great news for 37 million others in the world living with HIV.

Researchers are using a vaccine to train the immune system to spot hidden HIV proteins.

Then, another drug is used to kick the dormant T-cells awake. That allows the immune system to kill HIV-infected cells.
