MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Doctors at the University of Minnesota Amplatz Children's Hospital are hoping a bone marrow transplant will cure a boy diagnosed with HIV and leukemia.
If successful, doctors say the 12-year-old boy would be only the second person in the world to be cured of HIV. The boy had a bone marrow transplant Tuesday, but in this case, the procedure was done using umbilical cord blood.
KARE-TV reports it could be two or three months before doctors know if the transplant is successful.
