Unfortunate choice of words in the headline, perhaps a failed pun. Or maybe it was just me. Either way, it has nothing to do with lesions: the drug seems to deter or prevent the HIV -> AIDS transition.

Maybe this combined with the stem cell transplanting can eliminate AIDS altogether. All you have to do is stop it from spreading then get your stem cells to to push out infected cells.
