World’s first HIV cured person dies

Date: 02 October 2020 Tags: Obituaries
  • After a five-month battle with leukemia, the first known person to be cured of HIV, Timothy Ray Brown, has died of cancer. He was also known as "the Berlin patient”.
  • Brown was considered cured of his HIV infection in 2008. In the year prior, Brown received a bone marrow transplant in Berlin, Germany, to treat a separate disease he had been diagnosed with: acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
  • The bone marrow he received came from a donor whose genes carried a rare mutation that made the donor naturally resistant to HIV, known as CCR5-delta 32, which was transferred on to Brown.
