The Barcelona patient - the extraordinary case of a functional HIV cure
Known as "the Barcelona patient", a 75 year-old-woman who has been off antiretrovirals for 15 years made headlines worldwide this summer when her case was presented at the 24th International AIDS Conference in Montreal, Canada. Alejandra Angulo Alonso is joined by Cristina Tomàs White and Gerard Escaich Folch to talk about the extraordinary Barcelona patient as well as HIV research in Catalonia. We also speak with Dr. Josep Mallolas, the head of Hospital Clínic's HIV-AIDS unit and a member of the research team behind this unique case that could eventually lead to a functional cure for others too. This week's Catalan phrase is 'No tirar la tovallola', which means "Not giving up."
