Mississippi Infant Thought To Be "Cured" Of HIV Suffers Relapse

Terrible news out of Mississippi, where an infant who made international news in 2013 for being apparently "cured" of the HIV virus has shown signs of the disease once again. 

The New York Times reports:

The report in March 2013 that the child had apparently been cured touched off excitement among doctors around the world. Dr. Deborah Persaud, an associate professor at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center and the lead author of the report, said it was “proof of principle that we can cure H.I.V. infection if we can replicate this case.”

So Thursday’s announcement was especially deflating. During a telephone news conference held by the National Institutes of Health, Dr. Hannah B. Gay (pictured), the pediatrician at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson who first put the child on large doses of antiretroviral drugs, said it was “like a punch in the gut.”

Late last year, two men who were thought to be cured of the virus through stem cell treatments also suffered relapses.
