Thank you Richard64 for sharing. I just heard this on the news. If he remains in remission it could be an incredible medical breakthrough and step forward in stem cell research.

Thank you Richard64 for the encouraging message. I’ve been researching the possibility of getting stem cell either from Europe or from wherever success has been proven. Do you have more information about success of stem cell for cirrhotic liver? Thank you. Beefeater

Sadly not, l heard about the newspaper article and thought others may like to know about it. It would appear that this form of treatment isn't going to be made available to everyone. There is a general feeling that the moden drugs used today, are enough to control HIV. But l dont think that these drugs are a complete cure.

I believe more information is definitely needed.

Thanks Richard64 for the reply. Probably in the younger generation, researches will result in at least improving quality of life and more so to replace damaged portions of the liver with newer cells.
