(AP) -- Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania think it may be possible to make a patient resistant to HIV.

Researchers say they have genetically modified the immune cells of 12 HIV positive patients in hopes of making their cells immune to infections.

According to the study, the results were so good, six of the patients stopped taking their medication temporarily and, in one case, the virus was reduced to undetectable levels.
