There is no cure for Human Immuno deficiency Virus (HIV), but there are treatments to enable most people with the virus to live a long and healthy life. In a world-first, a French girl who was born with HIV has been in remission for 12 years after stopping her medication. The researchers said that this finding renews hope for the prospect of early treatment of HIV.
Research led by Dr Asier Saez-Cirion of the HIV, Inflammation and Persistence Unit at the Institut Pasteur in Paris said, "The young woman, now 18, is not considered cured, but is doing perfectly well off treatment."
