Miracle AIDS Baby-Medical Innovation at Work

03.04.13 | By Mark Grayson

Anyone who thinks that medical science is standing still should take note of the story today that a baby born with the AIDS virus appears to have been cured. While much more needs to be done that can replicate this result and ensuring that there are no problems with aggressive treatment of a newborn, this is, indeed, cause for celebration.

This baby is the second person known to be cured of AIDS. The first was a gentleman in Germany. We can only hope that scientific discovery continues in this and many other areas where many are waiting for cures.

In the meantime, the biopharmaceutical industry is testing 73 new medicines and vaccines to treat HIV in the hopes that soon a cure can be found for people all around the world.
