NIH to Study Whether Infants Born With HIV Can Be Cured With Aggressive Therapy

June 23, 2014

The Washington Post: A Mississippi infant's case opens a new door on studying a cure for HIV
Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at NIH

"... The possibility of achieving an HIV cure for thousands of infants is too important not to pursue vigorously. The National Institutes of Health will soon launch a carefully monitored clinical trial in 12 countries, including the United States. The study aims to replicate the results of the Mississippi baby case in other infants exposed to HIV in the womb. ... Meanwhile, we must work even harder to reach all HIV-infected women, especially those who are pregnant, with treatment and care -- both for their own health and that of any children they bear" (6/20).
