HIV-AIDS Patients cured, but not yet a viable cure
Several years ago a difficult operation was performed on a cancer patient with HIV-AIDS. Using T-cells from the very rare individuals that have a double mutation resistance to the virus, the risky bone marrow T-cell operation was successful and the man has been HIV-negative for years.
Recently a second similar operation has been performed and that man also has been declared HIV negative, but the process is not being hailed as a cure.
Canadian HIV-AIDs researcher Nicole Bernard (PhD) at the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre explains.

Ted Lindsay was a popular player in the National Hockey League of the 1950’s and 60’s. He was certainly well-known, but not what we would call a “superstar”. He passed away this month, and as Terry tells us, he was better known for his “off-ice” activity as he sought to organize players into a union to seek better conditions for them, and ended up created the Players.
Terry speaks to a sports broadcaster who was active during Lindsay’s time as a player and reminisces about the player and the NHL .
