Wow. More HIV 'cured': first a baby, now 14 adults - health - 14 March 2013 - New Scientist

Wow. More HIV 'cured': first a baby, now 14 adults - health - 14 March 2013 - New Scientist | HIV testing | Scoop.it

"A small group of adults given rapid drug treatment after HIV infection no longer need drugs to keep the virus in check...

 

All of the participants' drug regimes had been interrupted for one reason or another. For example, some people had made a personal choice to stop taking the drugs, others had been part of a trial of different drug protocols.

Most of the 70 people relapsed when their treatment was interrupted, with the virus rebounding rapidly to pre-treatment levels. But 14 of them – four women and 10 men – were able to stay off of ARVs without relapsing, having taken the drugs for an average of three years.

The 14 adults still have traces of HIV in their blood, but at such low levels that their body can naturally keep it in check without drugs...."

Almost a day after the baby was born it was treated with its first dose of medicine to cure its Aids but by then it was already showing signs of having the infection. Doctors said to believe the baby got HIV "while still in the womb"
Raelynn Burger's comment, March 20, 2013 9:42 AM
Doctors tried curing the infection of the child by giving it a certain type of drug. For more than a year the doctors kept in contact with the mother and her baby in hopes of curing the HIV. Eventually the mother stopped bringing the baby back and stopped giving her child the drugs. Five months later she returned and told them she had stopped giving her child the drugs. The doctors tested the baby for HIV and it came out HIV negative.
Raelynn Burger's comment, March 20, 2013 9:46 AM
Statistics show "a record of 34.2 million people worldwide are living with HIV". United Nations are still trying to prevent HIV and find a cure. The infection is a serious and dangerous disease with "4,000 deaths a day".
