Science Daily: Child living with HIV maintains remission without drugs since 2008 - Child treated in infancy
summary - A nine-year-old South African child who was diagnosed with HIV infection at one month of age and received anti-HIV treatment during infancy has suppressed the virus without anti-HIV drugs for eight and a half years, scientists report. This case appears to be the third reported instance of sustained HIV remission in a child after early, limited anti-HIV treatment.
