Current research has equipped the medical world enough to help prevent the transmission of HIV from a mother to her child. In a recent case, a new-born incurred HIV infection when the mother didn’t take the right medications to prevent transmission. However, two years later, the child now registers no signs of HIV infections, which is very surprising for the researchers.

HI Virus

According to the doctors, the child was diagnosed with the HIV infection merely two days after his birth, back in 2010. He was immediately put on a liquid antiretroviral treatment which comprises of a number of anti-HIV drugs. The treatment was continued for some 18 months after which, it was discontinued for unknown reasons.

However, nearly a year later, when the child’s blood was tested, it registered absolutely no signs of a HIV infection. Naturally, that left the doctors amazed.

According to Dr. Anthony S. Fauci of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, “With this case, it appears we may have not only a positive outcome for the particular child, but also a promising lead for additional research toward curing other children.”

Senior medical researchers also cited that taking example from the case, doctors can explore the efficacy of antiretroviral treatment in the early days after birth. However, they have also stressed that this is the first-ever case of its kind and researchers will have to be very careful in examining the causes which lead to the child’s cure and also discern whether or not similar effects can be reproduced in other patients.
