In 2007, Timothy Ray Brown was first diagnosed with HIV. They had been transplanted by a naturally occurring HIV-resistant donor. Although umbilical cord blood is more widely available than adult stem cells, it does not require coordination between donor and recipient.
Investigator of Regenerative Medicine, Stem RX Bioscience Solutions Pvt. Ltd. Dr. According to Pradeep Mahajan, “There are some people in the world who have natural mutations in the gene itself. That makes them fight against H ivy. They are never infected with HIV.
“Now, scientists have used umbilical cord blood from a donor to treat a bone marrow transplant in a woman with leukemia. Surprisingly, the woman is recovering from HIV. This is because the donor’s umbilical cord blood had the aforementioned mutation. This helped cure a woman’s HIV infection after the transplant. This is the first treatment that uses umbilical cord blood to treat HIV. Mahajan has said.
However, it is important to test the mutation in umbilical cord blood before using it for treatment with HIV, says Dr. Mahajan asserted.
Symptoms of AIDS:
There are many symptoms when HIV is found. Not everyone who has this disease will have the same symptoms. The symptoms that each person encounters will depend on the person’s immune system and the stage of the disease they have. Some common symptoms include fever, chills, muscle pain, throat pain and mouth ulcers. These symptoms can last from a few days to weeks. Others have no symptoms at the earliest stage of HIV. Many people think that AIDS can spread through the air. However, we must not forget that HIV is transmitted through direct contact with certain body fluids, such as blood, sperm, rectal fluid, vaginal fluids and breast milk.
