  • Scientists have studied 'elite controller' Loreen Willenberg, 66, for decades 

  • Doctors say the Californian woman's body fights the infection naturally 

  • But now academics claim she can be 'added to the list' of cured HIV patients

  • Only the 'Berlin patient' and the 'London patient' have been cured of HIV

  • But they had bone-marrow transplants to rid them of cancer at the same time

Yes, Loreen Willenberg lives here in the northbay area. She is what they call an elite controller, because such individuals have abilities that seem to naturally combat and control HIV.

I believe she ran with the meth crowd up in the Gold Country, and that's where it came from. But I don't know the details. She only went public in 2006.

It's under study right now. I'm not sure it is the strain of HIV she has, or something in her body's immune system that suppresses it--which the press is playing up as they hope for a vaccine. Chance disease mutation, or fortuitous immune system, she's very lucky.
