LONDON, Nov. 16 (UPI) -- The British clinic that initially told a man his body had rid itself of HIV now says the man did not have the virus in the first place.

"It is probably there was never any evidence of him having the HIV virus," the Chelsea and Westminster NHS Trust admitted. "We don't know exactly what happened.

The clinic initially told Andrew Stimpson, 25, of London, he had contracted the virus that causes AIDS and later told him that by some miracle, his body had rid itself of the disease.

Stimpson said Wednesday he had lost "all confidence" in the clinic, the Mirror reported.
