Toddler cured of HIV? University of Chicago doctor explains

This is one for the record books and never before seen according to doctors.

A baby, born to an HIV positive mother in Mississippi, first tests positive for HIV.

Doctors at the University of Mississippi Medical Center did not hesitate and immediately gave the baby a regimen of anti-retroviral medications, a cocktail often used to treat HIV in adults.

Within a month, the baby’s blood tests showed no viral load, no HIV.

Dr. Dr. Daniel Johnson, an expert in pediatric infectious diseases and in the care of HIV-infected children at the University of Chicago visited the WGN Evening News to put the case in perspective.
