Featured Speaker:
Jay Kostman, MD

Dr. Kostman is Head of the Division of Infectious Diseases at the Presbyterian Medical Center. He is also the principal investigator at a community consortium of clinical research sites for HIV-infected individuals.

Did you know that a man was cured of AIDS in 2008? There’s exciting science taking place, but much needs to happen before a cure is developed for millions of people. We will talk about the state of cutting-edge science and community action that could help support the push for a cure.

Researchers, health professionals, people with AIDS and their friends and allies are
encouraged to attend. Sponsored by the AIDS Policy Project and ACT UP Philadelphia.

Is anyone going to report what was presented? Who funded the meeting? Did anyone ask Dr. Jay Kostman to interview Nobuto Yamamoto, Ph.D. (given that no one else will)?

Note that there is NO ARGUMENT regarding the man cured by a very dangerous (whole body radiation) and very expensive (bone marrow transplant with replacement bone marrow cells carrying two copies of the delta-32 deletion in the CCR5 gene), which is available to only a few people. But, a safe and inexpensive cure (GcMAF), available to (perhaps) most young, healthy recently HIV-infected, people is ignored. Why?
