Can HIV Be Cured If It's Caught Early?

Question

Can hiv be cured at an early stage? Thank you doc in advance

Answer

In general, no. The two cases that have been reported in the news lately had very special circumstances and conditions as to why bone marrow transplantation and HIV treatment worked to cure their infections. HIV treatment has been found to effectively prevent infection when being taken prior to an infection exposure. Because the way HIV drugs work, once infection is present, it would be very difficult to cure infection with currently available HIV drugs.
