An advancement in HIV research was announced on March 3, 2013, in Atlanta, Ga.
Dr. Deborah Persaud of Johns Hopkins University outlined the “first documented case of a child being cured of HIV,” according to ScienceDaily, while attending the 2013 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections.
ScienceDaily reported that, “According to Persaud, comprehensive tests have confirmed beyond doubt that both mother and child were HIV positive when the child was born, and today no signs of HIV infection in the child can be detected by the most sensitive means available.”
