Praise for Cured

“It’s one of the most incredible stories in medical science: a cure for HIV.  Nathalia Holt tells the personal stories of the patients, their families, and their doctors.”—National Geographic

“One learns fascinating details about AIDS and shares Holt’s hope…She is among those working to make the promise real”—New York Times Book Review

“Nathalia Holt presents a thorough account of the research that provides scientists with hope that a cure will one day be achievable… and her empathy shines through in her prose. This is as important a social history as it is a medical document.”—The Daily Beast

“In this accessible and fascinating account, Holt, a research scientist trained at MIT and Harvard…brings to light the remarkable early breakthroughs in treating a once fatal condition.” - Publishers Weekly

“A fascinating discourse on how medical science is zeroing in on an HIV vaccine after several anomalous triumphs…An astute AIDS retrospective blended with contemporary updates on aggressive medical strategies.” - Kirkus Reviews

“In this exquisitely detailed telling of medicine’s desperate fight to control the HIV epidemic, author Nathalia Holt reminds us that all the best medical stories are foremost stories of people – their determination, their courage, and their ability, in the best of circumstances, to rewrite history in a way that protects us all.”—Deborah Blum, author of The Poisoner’s Handbook
