The patient, a U.S. citizen living in Germany, was suffering from advanced leukemia and HIV two years ago when Huetter treated the cancer with a bone-marrow transplant at Berlin's Charité hospital. As a side experiment, he inserted the bone marrow of a donor naturally resistant to HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. (Researchers have long known that about 1% of Europeans carry a genetic mutation that makes their cells resistant to HIV infection.) Bone marrow produces the cells that HIV attacks. So, the thinking went, inserting marrow that produces HIV-resistant cells might endow the patient with a means to repel the infection. Twenty months after the transplant, Huetter says, the man shows no signs of carrying the virus. .......... @ltaLINK
The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a pathogen so wily and protean that researchers rarely talk about curing infected patients, focusing instead on treatment and prevention. But in an announcement that caused a flutter of excitement and a wave of prudent skepticism, Berlin-based hematologist Gero Huetter claimed on Thursday that he has cured an HIV infection in a 42-year-old man through a bone-marrow transplant.

An INTRANET is a private network accessible only to an organization's staff or members. Generally a wide range of information and services from the organization's internal IT systems are available that would not be available to the public from the Internet. By function, ACORis an INTRANETsite.
When a #Canswerist (aka cancer survivor or caregiver) looks to begin or extend research for their diagnosis (DX), the world wide web (or internet) is a logical starting points. Typically, such a search may lead to discovery on a range of INTRANETS.
canswerist.comcanswersite.com#CANSWERISTS (aka cancer survivors or caregivers for same) have numerous social media locations to follow on Facebook and other popular sites. Sometimes, I engage the contributors of posts with a comment about my own experience and what follows is an example of such an encounter.
My almost more than 5,000 followers on social media and blogs know very well that my major attraction to social media and microblogging had its origins with my 2006 DX with mantle cell lymphoma. This medium proved to be the best way to communicate my treatment progress during these last dozen years. For a native Floridian with family members residing coast-to-coast, blogs and social media are a godsend for communication.
Thanks to everyone who offered time to read and comment here. Truly, I don't know what the posts have done for you, but your presence has been helpful to me. Of course, the content reaches well beyond social media with more than 5,000 followers on a family of…
Bitterness "A Place of No Grace" is an exciting book by Pastor Paul Kingsbury with analysis of bitterness: the causes, the effects, and the treatment of this catastrophic condition. ▶ https://t.co/WFHTr7N9f9 — Mike Foxworth (@ALTALOMAN) December 29, 2017
During my pre-teen years (the late 50s and early 60s), my parents purchased some undeveloped land in North Florida that couldn’t even live up to the moniker, “a swamp.”
But I remember that a few trees indigenous to the acreage were Mulberry, aka Morus, a genus of flowering plants in the family Moraceae comprises 10–16 species of deciduous trees commonly known as mulberries, growing wild and under cultivation in many temperate world regions.
Luke 17:6 refers to the tree as a Sycamine which there is associated with “bitterness.” Immature mulberry fruits are white, green, or pale yellow. In most species the fruits turn pink and then red while ripening, then dark purple or black, and have a sweet flavor when fully ripe, but …
