Roy T. Steigbigel, MD, is a Distinguished Service Professor and Professor of Medicine, Pharmacology, Pathology and Microbiology at the Renaissance School of Medicine at Stony Brook University, and an expert on HIV/AIDS. Dr. Steigbigel explains that that the cure of another patient from his HIV infection resulted from treatment for cancer, which eliminated the patient’s HIV infection. In fact, both patients who have experienced this type of cure had a bone marrow transplant and radiation therapy to treat their malignancy.
