The First Child with HIV is Cured

In a landmark announcement, researchers said they’d cured the first child with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. The 26-month-old toddler was born to a mother also infected with the virus, and was started on combination antiretroviral treatment (ART) when she was just 30 hours old. A press release issued by Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, home to Deborah Persaud, Ph.D., a virologist and the study’s lead author, said the news “may help pave the way to eliminating HIV infection in children.”
