"@CBSThisMorning: Doctors say a baby in Mississippi born with HIV has been "cured." The latest, ahead on @CBSThisMorning: http://cbsn.ws/12n7TDM" -extracted from twitter

"WASHINGTON A baby born with the AIDS virus appears to have been cured, scientists announced Sunday, describing the case of a child from Mississippi who's now two and a half years old and has been off medication for about a year with no signs of infection.

There's no guarantee the child will remain healthy, although sophisticated testing uncovered just traces of the virus' genetic material still lingering. If so, it would mark only the world's second reported cure." -extracted from website, link above.

Could this be the end of it...
Could this be the cure we have
Been awaiting for, for so long;
Every virus and disease we have
Managed to cure or prevent;
Is Aids/HIV finally curable.




*sighs with relief*
