CURED/NOT CURED is a free community forum with Gary Steinkohl, a.k.a. "Patient B" --one of two HIV+ men who received stem cell transplants as cancer treatment and were then asked to stop their antiretroviral therapy as participants in an experiment to find out if they had been cured--and the Harvard researcher who led the experiment, Dr. Timothy Henrich. As an example of what lies ahead for many more people as we approach clinical attempts to eliminate HIV from the body, this cautionary tale is full of inspiration for people everywhere who live with HIV and for anyone who dreams about a cure for HIV.
