JACH MDabout this book: A FICTIONAL NOVEL ABOUT A POSSIBLE HIV CURE
Nameless, Blameless Reproduction is a fictional novel about an obstetrician-gynecologist who adopts a baby with HIV and seeks to cure the infant through a stem cell donation from an individual lacking the CCR5 receptor, also her brother.
I weaved this novel from many inspirations. The first is the discovery of individuals lacking the CCR5 receptor making them resistant to HIV infection. The second is news of Berlin Man, the first person known to receive a stem cell donation from a person lacking the CCR5 receptor, thus curing himself of HIV. The idea of a stem cell cure for HIV is real, and yet finding a stem cell match for a recipient can be near impossible. I wanted to create a compelling novel that would draw people to this topic and stimulate more ideas and knowledge about this very interesting concept.
I also draw inspiration from years of being an obstetrician-gynecologist taking care of women with infertility, while ironically also taking care of women with unwanted fertility; a bitter fact of life is that maternal desires and fertility don't always match up.
