"There is excitement around this," said Dr. Deborah Persaud of John's Hopkins Children's Center.
Doctors across the country are heralding the medical breakthrough in Jackson.
"We have, perhaps inadvertently, but in fact, cured the child," said Dr. Hannah Gay, associate professor of pediatrics. "We don't know yet what to expect with this patient because she's the first of her kind."
The hospital will not share many details about the 2-and-a-half-year-old who was born HIV positive, saying only the child is from the Mississippi area and was born to a woman with HIV.

Not to mention a drug bust and fire Hydrant testing!
...and the sperving bearings interfered with the panometric flam.
Wow, what a complex medical case! And they haven't even gotten to the infant yet. Must have the docs' heads spinning.
There is a European man theoretically cured of HIV. He had HIV, had leukemia, they picked a bone marrow donor who had 2 copies of the Delta-32 gene that makes someone immune to HIV. Man in theory is cured.
Jokes aside, this is good news story.
And the fandleratus might be reflatulating the flentrop or — if they’re lucky, the snercher is just plain shot.
Keeping fingers crossed, but with these types of diseases, call me skeptical. Only time will tell.
That's it. You win. LOL
Which one? The flipped 18 wheeler, or the grenade?
The good news is that the cost of the cure for AIDS will be covered by selling tickets to happily-paying rednecks.
Awesome..if true. I knew a little girl who lost her Mom and Dad to AIDS because of someones promiscuity. No one ever said which parent it was...so sad.
It has been known for some time that a grenade launcher will eliminate all other medical problems.
BUMP! This could be seriesly hugh if it can be proven.
Only, and only in Mississippi! But, no matter how crazy they report the news, it is still something newsworthy.
Dr. Hannah Gay is a pediatric physician in Jackson, MS and has been working with an infant infected with HIV at birth. Apparently the HIV is no longer detectable in the infant at present. So, great news all around. The truck, the grenade and all others are the result of the good ole boys celebrating over this story. Thats the way it plays down here.
If the money’s right, I’d be willing to take that job.
Thanks for posting. If this treatment can be reproduced, it is incredible news.
Its a shame the thread became an embarrassment due to other posters.
So she tracks the infant down because they find out that she hasn’t been getting her medicine. Then they find out that she doesn’t have HIV?
Probably didn’t have it in the first place, or the tests got messed up and the child didn’t have it to begin with.
They are saying the child was cured, but they didn’t do anything.
Either a miracle, or Dr. Gay isn’t a very good doctor.
Is the kid named Shaqette?
Praise God and Dr. Hannah Gay.
It is amazing!
