Transplantation of Selected Blood Stem Cells as a Treatment

Gero Hütter of Red Cross Germany proposes to use stem cells transplants to cure HIV. He is planning to develop a program that generates a registry of stem cells that lack the CCR5 protein, which is used by HIV to enter into a cell. If successful these adult stem cells could be transplanted into a HIV patient and effectively "cure" HIV.
