Baby Born With HIV Cured

WASHINGTON (March 4, 2013)—It what would be promising news in the search for better ways to fight pediatric AIDS, a baby born with HIV appears to have been cured thanks to faster and stronger treatment than is usual for newborns, scientists say.

The child, who’s now 2½, has been off HIV drugs for about a year with no signs of infection.

If the child remains healthy, it would mark only the world's second reported cure.
