Johns Hopkins recently received approval from the United Network for Organ Sharing to be the first hospital in the United States to perform HIV-positive to HIV-positive organ transplants.
The institution will be the first in the nation to do an HIV-positive kidney transplant and the first in the world to execute an HIV-positive liver transplant.
"This is an unbelievably exciting day for our hospital and our team, but more importantly for patients living with HIV and end-stage organ disease. For these individuals, this means a new chance at life," says Dorry Segev, associate professor of surgery at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
If they can make such progress , why is there no cure for this ailment . Guess I should still commend the fact that this population has not been forgotten. So Kudos all the same to the science world.
