“A baby girl in Mississippi appears to have been cured of HIV and some in the medical community are calling it a game changer. The virus was spotted 30 hours after the girl was born; an hour later doctors began an aggressive regimen of widely available drugs. A month later virus levels were undetectable in her immune system.
The child is now two and a half and off medication and still appears cured. Some say this amazing case gives them new inspiration and fresh hope that a cure is possible, at least for babies. The battle is still raging: 1,000 babies are born with HIV each day and every year about three million people die of AIDS or AIDS-related complications.”
Couldn’t believe this when I read it! Science is just amazing. Let’s hope the same can happen for many other diseases in the future.
