Baby with HIV ‘cured’ in US

A baby girl in the US born with HIV appears to have been cured after very early treatment with standard drug therapy, doctors say. BBC News Online, 4 March 2013.

The Mississippi child is now two-and-a-half years old and has been off medication for about a year with no signs of infection.

More testing needs to be done to see if the treatment – given within hours of birth – would work for others.

If the girl stays healthy, it would be the world’s second reported ‘cure’.
