A Baby Born With the HIV Virus, 'Cured'!
A baby born with the virus that causes Aids appears to have been cured, scientists have announced.Specialists at a major Aids meeting in Atlanta, Georgia, described the case of a child from Mississippi who is now two and a half and has been off medication for about a year with no signs of infection.There is no guarantee the child will remain healthy, although sophisticated testing uncovered just traces of the virus’ genetic material still lingering. If so, it would be only the world’s second reported cure.
