Early treatment ‘cures’ second US HIV-positive baby
The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) attacks the immune system
US researchers have revealed another baby carrying the HIV virus, which leads to Aids, may have been cured through early treatment.
Antiretroviral drugs were reportedly administered to the baby in California just four hours after birth.
The unidentified nine-month-old child is now said to be HIV negative.
It is the second such case after an HIV-positive Mississippi infant brought into remission following early treatment was reported in 2013.
