Bone marrow transplants may help AIDS victims

The Australian, 17 August 1983, p 11:

BONE marrow transplants will soon be used as a method of treating severe cases of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), a Sydney doctor predicts.

Dr David Cooper, of the Department of Immunology at St Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney, has just returned from US studies of immunology and AIDS.¬†At a public forum on the syndrome in Sydney on Monday night, he said bone marrow transplants were a possibility for treating severe cases of the syndrome.

But Dr Cooper predicted that even if the agent responsible for AIDS were discovered, it would still not solve patients’ problems.
