    This is definitly a big step in the right direction on a cure being found for HIV and AIDS. Granted it was cured in a baby that had been diagnosed early but hopefully this leads to a cure for Adults with HIV and AIDS. One small step at a time though.

    May it be true, that everything checks out.  It seems too good to be true.  But apparently many doctors are testifying to it.

    It looks as though the child was cured with the standard cocktail drugs currently in use to treat HIV, which is promising for newborns but not so much for older people with the disease.  That said, we know of at least two cases that have been cured.  The second was a result of stem cells where the donor had a rare genetic mutation that resisted infection.

    Kudos to the contributing doctors.

    Hopefully, this will help increase the frequency of pre- and post-natal AIDS testing with the advent of increased access to health care.

    That said, this is NOT a cure.  The child is still infected; her body is just over-powering the virus.

    (And not for nothing, but the research to do this study in the first place was co-funded by the NIH.)
