Washington – Doctors have revealed that they may have put HIV into remission in a Mississippi baby born with the AIDS virus.

The new report on the case, which was reported earlier this year, by the New England Journal of Medicine said that the girl who was infected in the womb and was treated unusually aggressively, and has shown no active infection despite stopping AIDS medicines 18 months ago, the Huffington Post reported.

However, Dr. Katherine Luzuriaga, a University of Massachusetts AIDS expert involved in the baby’s care said that as they want to be very cautious, they are calling it remission and not a cure as it is uncertain as to what proof or how much time is needed to declare someone free of HIV infection, which has long been feared to be permanent.
