Asean nations see bulk of new HIV infections in Asia-Pacific

  • UNAIDS: 4 of 5 HIV-Infected People in Jamaica Know Status

A child's HIV is in remission without drugs in a miraculous case included in a presentation at the 9th IAS Conference on HIV Science in Paris this week. It comes amid reports that a South African girl has shown no signs of the virus rebounding despite being taken off drugs years ago.

Rizza said cases like the child in South Africa are "interesting" and worthy of study, but still unclear at this point.

The researchers hope that by studying this child, they may gain a better understanding of how a person's body can, in some cases, control HIV without the use of daily drugs. Doctors have long known that while HIV-treatment is life-saving in these children, there are concerns about the side-effects and health impacts of lifelong therapy with these powerful drugs.

The South African child was part of a NIAID-funded trial in 2007 for treating infants with HIV. By 40 weeks, the baby's immune system was in good shape with no symptoms of the disease.

Dr. Avy Violari, paediatric research head at the Perinal HIV Research Unit in Johannesburg, said, "We don't believe that antiretroviral therapy alone can lead to remission".

Fauci said it strengthened the argument that babies born positive must be put on treatment as soon as possible as it stopped the virus entering too many cells.

A child diagnosed with HIV as a baby has gone into remission, raising hopes for a cure among sufferers, scientists said.

The estimated number of dollars needed to reach the U.N.'s 90-90-90 goal - 90 percent of all people with HIV know they are infected, with 90 percent of those taking sustained antiretroviral therapy, with 90 percent of those achieving suppression of the virus - by 2020. In one of such cases, a baby from MS, who was given the medications for first 18 months, stayed in remission for 27 months without medication, but the virus later returned.

The child was born to an HIV-positive mother and was taken to one of the clinics at about eight weeks of age. The blood showed no detectable level of virus for 13 years after completion of treatment.

The virus did not appear to have capable of replicating although the researchers did find HIV in some of the girl immune cells. "A new five-year Global Action Plan calls on all countries and partners to join efforts to prevent, monitor and respond to HIV drug resistance and to protect the ongoing progress towards the Sustainable Development Goal of ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030".

Swaziland, a small country in southern Africa, has reduced the rate of HIV infections by nearly half in five years by boosting access to HIV drugs, according to researchers.

Last week, the United Nations said more than half of all people with the HIV virus have access to treatment but advocates remain concerned Trump's proposed budget cuts from the biggest donor nation, which is said to reduce financial aid to global HIV programs by $1 billion, CGTN America reported.

The other two children who have had similar successful outcomes were in France and Mississippi.
