Baby HIV ‘Cure’ Promising For African Countries

Recent news has reported a Mississippi child who was apparently “cured” of HIV by receiving treatment shortly after birth.  Two years later, the child’s viral loads are undetectable, despite being off treatment for almost a year.

 

Ragon Institute Principal Investigator Dr. Brian Zanoni speaks to NPR about what could have caused this and what the greater implication is for HIV in developing countries.
