Researchers: Two men with AIDS cured by transplants

WASHINGTON

Researchers believe bone marrow transplants may have cured two HIV positive men. Doctors at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston can no longer find any trace of HIV in the men's blood cells. They underwent the transplants while taking anti-retroviral drugs.

The theory is those drugs may have kept the virus from spreading after the transplants. It will take some time to determine whether the results are permanent.
