Brown received a stem-cell transplant in Berlin in 2007 that transferred genetic material to him from one of the 2 percent of people with natural immunity to HIV, Bloomberg Businessweek reports in its Feb. 14 issue. He’s been off treatment since then, and no trace of the AIDS virus has been found in his body, according to Brown's hematologist. Bloomberg's Shannon Pettypiece reports. (Source: Bloomberg)
