Baby now free of HIV has doctors talking
NBC News: A baby born infected with the AIDS virus who got immediate treatment now has no detectable virus in her blood. Her case, presented to a meeting of AIDS researchers, will prompt questions about how early babies should be treated. It also illustrates the possibility that immediate treatment with HIV drugs could do a lot to protect those who are newly infected.
Dr. Deborah Persaud of the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, the virologist who led the study, says scientists see this as the first well-documented case of a functional cure in a neonatal child.
Persaud says a functional cure means the virus isn’t entirely gone, but it’s also not doing any damage. Doctors believe it’s because they began therapy for the baby within 48 hours of being infected

I’m double majoring… somehow. If it doesn’t work out, I don’t know how I’ll deal. I’m going to do Dance Studies and Health Science with a concentration in allied health. I have to double major in order to keep my dance scholarship. Yeah, it sucks bad.
I spent like two hours trying to figure a schedule out for next semester, but I can’t. Luckily, I have a meeting with my adviser tomorrow. She doesn’t know what’s coming to her since I’m a Dance Education major right now. :)
Life’s been crazy lately. I mean seriously. Cory problems. Stress at home. Losing my grandmother. Just my head going crazy in general. Yeah, I don’t know. We’ll see what we work out tomorrow.:)
I think my tv is telling me to turn it off… It’s going crazy.
