Interview with Timothy Ray Brown, “the Berlin Patient”

Ten Years Free: An Interview with “The Berlin Patient,” Timothy Ray Brown

It was just about 10 years ago that Timothy Ray Brown was cured of HIV infection by receiving bone marrow stem cell transplantations from an HLA matched donor who also was homozygous for the CCR5 delta 32 mutation that renders immune cells resistant to infection by most HIV viruses. During an October 2017 visit to Cleveland to help launch a number of clinical trials targeting the Cure, Timothy sat down with Pathogens and Immunity editor Michael Lederman and community activist Earl Pike to talk about his experiences.

Dr. Lederman is the co–principal investigator of our Clinical Trials Unit and Mr. Pike is the former executive director of the AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland.
