Further details about a man who has become possibly the sixth case of a person with HIV to be considered ‘cured’ of the disease are due to be revealed at a Brisbane HIV conference.

First diagnosed with HIV in 1990, the man had been taking antiretroviral drugs since 2005 and received a stem cell transplant two years ago to treat a rare type of blood cancer.
