University of California, Los Angeles: In study led by UCLA professor, woman with HIV is in remission

UCLA researchers speaking at the Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections have presented the first case of a U.S. woman living with HIV-1 that is in remission.

The woman, who was diagnosed with acute HIV in 2013 and acute myeloid leukemia in 2017, received umbilical cord blood cells as a treatment for her cancer. The leukemia has been in remission for four-and-a-half years, and there has been no rebound of HIV in the 14 months since antiretroviral therapy ended.
