I remember reading about this a long time ago. The article I was reading at the time also claimed a cure for HIV. Something like 2% of the population are immune to most strains of HIV and a bone marrow transplant makes your body produce immune blood cells that replace all the infected cells in months. Or something like that, it's been years since I read it but interesting stuff
