Man Beats AIDS With Stem Cell Transplant

It seems as if a miracle has happened, proven by a man named Timothy Brown, who was once diagnosed with AIDS but is now disease-free.

According to ABC News, 46-year-old Brown received a transplant of blood stem cells to treat leukemia in 2007, and now his body shows no signs of the virus, making him the world's sole victor over AIDS. And while he is a special case, doctors hope to repeat the procedure used on Brown for others.
