Timothy Ray Brown: the accidental AIDS icon

The ‘Berlin patient’ didn’t ask to be cured of HIV; now he wants a cure for all

Feb. 20, 2015 | By Mary Engel / Fred Hutch News Service

Timothy Ray Brown became an icon the day he came out as the previously anonymous “Berlin patient” – the first and still only person in the world to be cured of the virus that causes AIDS. But the path to becoming the personification of hope for the 35 million people worldwide infected with HIV has been more challenging – and more convoluted – than many people realize. Brown will talk about how he came to be cured and why he wants an easier cure for others at a free community event Feb. 26 at 6 p.m. at the downtown Seattle Public Library. He will share the stage with Dr. Gero Hϋtter, the German blood cancer specialist who had the idea of curing both Brown’s leukemia and his HIV infection by finding a stem-cell donor who carried a rare genetic mutation that protects against HIV.
