Did it disappear totally? I'm sure he's still alive and "Well". So how's it possible? I mean how is it possible that he's able to endure and seems like he's going to overcome the supposed to be incurable disease?

You know,I've wondered this myself. I know there have been advancements and that people are living longer, but didn't he get this around the early 90's? My cousin lived with it for 10yrs,then rapidly declined. Very good post Modstar.

I'm glad you appreciate my discussion. It's a global concern and if the scientists are keeping mum then i guess they owe us an explanation.

It seems that Magic Johnson has HIV but it still could into AIDS. I dont know whether he has been fortunate enough not to develop yet or yet. It still could occur. Being a rich person he can afford the latest medicine and treatment that can help him delay the process. Most people that have HIV do not have the money to afford the high fees for such medicine (c) ronaldinu 2009 - the more people I meet-the more I love my dog

you know I was wondering that too a while back I am not fan of sports but I sure remember he was diagnosed that many years ago at the time it was the deadliest disease but now there must have been treatments good enough to keep him healthy there are a lot of research centers and booklets about it now and someone like him surely can afford regular treatments and medications I don't think it disappears though, there is no cure to it yet so it's still there maybe they should conduct experiment on him because if he can survive it then something in his blood or cell can be useful for other patients

I'm not sure but i think it cannot be transmitted thru a kiss unless one of them has mouthsores.

I thought i saw somewhere that he had a false positive. That he has something in him that always made the test show positive.

If that's the case then it's bad new for the true positives because it could mean that there's still no cure for it or at least to prolong life like Magic Johnson.

No the disease doesn't 'disappear', but thanks to medical advances, people who contract the disease are living longer. At least the people who can afford the very expensive medication needed. Like epilepsy, diabetes and other incurable (at present) diseases, HIV and Aids are being managed more successfully.
