Submission + - Stem Cell Transplant Cures HIV Infection (current.com) 1

rhathar writes: A 42-year-old HIV patient with leukemia appears to have no detectable HIV in his blood and no symptoms after a stem cell transplant from a donor carrying a gene mutation that confers natural resistance to the virus that causes AIDS.

  "The patient is fine," said Dr. Gero Hutter of Charite Universitatsmedizin Berlin in Germany. "Today, two years after his transplantation, he is still without any signs of HIV disease and without antiretroviral medication."

Why is it considered a felony for a 13-year-old girl to send nude pictures of herself to her "friends", but it isn't a felony (quite the opposite) for some crusty old police officers to strip her naked and inspect her for bringing prescription drugs to school?

Another megabytes the dust.
