Title: An Infant With HIV Was Cured
Post by: YoungCaliman on March 05, 2013, 01:48 am
Interesting. Early administrations of available drugs was able to completely cure an infant girl from HIV. This could be ground breaking, and even if it isn't, this could introduce some ideas of research in order to find a cure for young children.

I read about that as well, pretty amazing. Maybe it will help push research along in that area.

My god...
Its amazing to see how modern medicine can (somewhat) cure diseases that 10, 20 years ago were deadly.
Whichever doctor helped give that girl a chance for a full life- I salute you good sir/madam. I salute you.

I imagine she had a lot of blood problems when she was born and needed blood transfusion, with an idiot of a doctor.

Yes, I know blood too. But how did HIV get in her mother's blood?
