Another thing to note is that it is a single time it has been "Cured"

This is not a CURE cure.

It is a work in progress but a huge breakthrough none-the-less

I've heard of something like that before. I saw a program many years ago talking about a genetic mutation that was present in a very high percentage of Scandinavians, and it pointed to a low instance of such diseases among them as "proof". I guess it wasn't total fabrication after all. Glad to hear it!

I don't know if it reflects poorly on me or on the WoW community at large, but reading the thread title and even the pop-up teaser off the first post, I was relatively sure this was some sort of butt secks joke.

As it turns out, it's pretty wild news. Who knew.

I can remember seeing a thing a few years ago where scientists did come up with a cure for a specific strain of AIDS. Sadly, by the time they'd made the cure, that strain was no longer prevalent.
