"Although it is not a viable large-scale strategy for a cure, it does represent a critical moment in the search for an HIV cure", said Anton Pozniak, president of the International AIDS Society in a statement.
It was only in 2016 that he was able to access the stem cell donation because he was seeking treatment for the cancer, not the HIB.
"By achieving remission in a second patient using a similar approach, we have shown that the Berlin Patient was not an anomaly, and that it really was the treatment approaches that eliminated HIV in these two people", said Gupta.
Then in 2017, Gupta took the London patient off of the anti-HIV drugs to see if the transplant had worked as it had in Brown's case: to push the HIV into remission. "We need to understand if we could knock out this (CCR5) receptor in people with HIV, which may be possible with gene therapy", he said.
For the London patient, Gupta and his team also found a donor who had these mutations in CCR5.

"I did not want to be the only person in the world cured of HIV", Brown wrote in a medical journal in 2015, explaining why he chose to reveal his identity. It was a similar approach to that used on Timothy Brown, also known as the "Berlin patient", who remains HIV-free today after treatment in Germany in 2007.
The London patient, whose case is set to be presented at a medical conference in Seattle on Tuesday, has asked his medical team not to reveal his name, age, nationality or other details. Numerous attempts to replicate the procedure have not been successful until now, with the latest case dubbed that of the "London patient". There are complications too. About 37 million people worldwide now have HIV, and the AIDS virus has killed about 35 million since taking off in the 1980s. Brown, now 52, had leukemia and underwent two bone marrow transplants, being placed in an induced coma following his treatment before eventually recovering.
Sharon R Lewin, director of the Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity and the University of Melbourne, told AFP, "The second case strengthens the idea that a cure is feasible".
