Quote:Bad news today from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease: the so-called “Mississippi Baby,” which newspaper headlines in the New York Times and Wall Street Journal declared “cured” last March, now has detectable HIV.

Quote:On the bright side, Kuritzkes said, the baby did go for years without detectable levels of HIV. It may be possible to induce a state of durable remission, as in cancer, perhaps by combining drugs that kill the virus with new therapies that prime the immune system to attack it.

I'm sure big pharma can come up with some outlandishly expensive treatments. Too bad there is no money in a cure.

I agree, I'm certain there's cures for many of the things people have but they are being kept a secret, because of profits.

Theres some rumors that the Government has a blood filter that is so fine it traps all virus's.

Saying it was created for the Battlefield.

Yes, one in Long Beach California who received the same treatment at birth.
