Baby cured of HIV remains virus-free after three years
The researchers reported on this case in March this year, when the baby had no medication 10 months.
While some scientists were skeptical that HIV infected embers baby when she was born, this new report shows that the child actually was infected before birth.
Doctors insist that the child can not be considered "cured" of HIV until after a longer period of time to ensure not falling.
The baby, born to a mother infected with HIV, was treated with higher doses than normal antiretroviral drugs 30 hours after birth. After more than a year of HIV treatment, the baby and her mother returned to the doctor's office for a while. The doctors were surprised when finally the patient and her baby returned to consultation and tests showed that the baby was not infected with HIV.
