In recent months, Treatment Action Group has created a web page resource that will attempt to provide accurate information on HIV cure research news that makes a splash in the mainstream media, particularly those stories that get mangled in the translation or are possibly based on dubious scientific claims.
So far the Cure Research Media Monitor page has covered four items:
- Doctors “Cure” HIV Patient with Cord Blood Transplant (November 2014)
- French Scientists Find Mechanism for Spontaneous HIV Cure (November 2014)
- Gene Editing Technique Removes HIV from Infected Cells (July 2014)
- Stem Cell Transplants for Cancers “Cleared” HIV in Two Australians (July 2014)
