Baby With AIDS cured
 
Doctors announced on Sunday that a baby had been cured of an HIV infection for the first time, a startling development that could lead to more aggressive treatment of babies infected at birth and a sharp reduction in the number of children living with the virus that causes AIDS.
The baby, born in rural Mississippi, was treated with antiretroviral drugs starting around 30 hours after birth, something that is not usually done. If further study shows this works in other babies, it will almost certainly change the way newborns of infected mothers are treated all over the world. The United Nations estimates that 330,000 babies were newly infected in 2011, the most recent year for which there is data, and that more than 3 million children globally are living with HIV.

Hopefully this is truly a start in trying to curb this disease.
