If standard treatment is stopped or interrupted, the reservoirs seize the chance and the virus starts to replicate and infect more cells, rendering the patient's immune system too weak to fight back.'Increasingly, researchers have been looking into the use of certain drugs that appear to re-activate the latent HIV-infected cells,' Spano said.

'This could have the effect of making them visible to the immune system, which could then attack them.'Opdivo, or nivolumab is a PD-1 inhibitor, designed to help the body's own immune system fend off cancer by blocking a protein called PD-1.

'Differences in the size of the latent reservoir or genetic differences between individuals, affecting their ability to mount immune responses to HIV, might be important factors.

In 2007, an American HIV and leukemia patient called Timothy Brown was cured of HIV.

Brown, known as the Berlin Patient since he was treated in Berlin, received a bone marrow transplant for his leukemia.

It is one of several cancer immunotherapy drugs made by drugmakers including Merck, Roche and Astra Zeneca that work in similar way.

In this case, the 51-year-old man had received 31 injections of nivolumab every 14 days since December 2016.

More likely, the worst case scenario is that it would simply not work as well.

The case, at the Pitie-Salpetriere Hospital AP-HP in Paris, was detailed in a report in the Annals of Oncology journal, where the same doctors also gave a case study of another patient treated with Opdivo who did not show any HIV benefit.'We must remain careful, especially because this is only one case,' said Jean-Philippe Spano, a professor and head of the medical oncology department at the Paris hospital.

Bone marrow transplants are always life-threatening since they replace a person's immune system with another's, and sometimes the body rejects the transplant.

As such, it is unlikely we would see such deadly outcomes if doctors tried to replicate the new French case.

He was diagnosed HIV-positive in 1995 and diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer in May 2015.
