Baby with HIV 'cured' with early treatment in US
A baby girl in the US born with HIV appears to have been cured after very early treatment with standard drug therapy, doctors say.
The Mississippi child is now two-and-a-half years old and has been off medication for about a year with no signs of infection.
More testing needs to be done to see if the treatment - given within hours of birth - would work for others.
If the girl stays healthy, it would be the world's second reported 'cure'.
