Doctors ‘cure’ baby with HIV infection.

The medical community is patting itself on the back, having claimed to ‘cure’ a baby from HIV infection.

According to Reuters,

A baby girl in Mississippi who was born with HIV has been cured after very early treatment with standard HIV drugs, U.S. researchers reported on Sunday, in a potentially ground-breaking case that could offer insights on how to eradicate HIV infection in its youngest victims.

The child’s story is the first account of an infant achieving a so-called functional cure, a rare event in which a person achieves remission without the need for drugs and standard blood tests show no signs that the virus is making copies of itself…

“This is a proof of concept that HIV can be potentially curable in infants,” said Dr. Deborah Persaud, a virologist at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, who presented the findings at the Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections in Atlanta.

How wonderful. A baby with an HIV infection got dumped with a bunch of drugs. Doctors are taking credit for it all.

But wait. According to the New York Times,

In the latest case, a Mississippi woman, who was infected with H.I.V., did not get treatment during her pregnancy. Doctors gave her baby a three-drug treatment-strength regimen, some 30 hours after birth. They continued the treatments for 18 months, after which the mother stopped going to the hospital and stopped giving her baby the drugs. Five months later, the mother returned with her child, who turned out to be free of the active virus. The baby, now 2 1/2 years old, has been free of the active virus ever since. (emphasis mine)

In other words, the mother got away from the doctors and their drugs for five months, and the baby was fine.

The wonders of modern science.

  1. Throw tomatoes at me if you wish,….but I suspect a false positive in the first place!

    Not only that,….I hear there are no seen blood work ups from the original baby’s blood test stating HIV.

    This story IS contrived to fabricate a MEDICAL cure for aids.

    • Jill, there is definitely something wrong with the story. It could be a play to get more grant money from the government.

    • It certainly sets off my “double-speak” meter! Greetings fellow neo-Habakusha along the West Coast, and wherever you are.

      I found this whilst surfing:

      Be well; use an LED monitor, i hear it may have less EMI than CCFL-based LCD monitors. Either way, don’t put your head too close to it for too long (less headache, etc), we all need more quality answers as is oft found on this site! Thank you again Bobby1, et al.

        • Find a pocket AM/FM radio & tune-in to a strong station, then turn on suspect equipment. If you get extra interference on FM band, that is probably bad. I tend to think of AM as more sensitive to malfunctioning (or poorly designed &/or constructed) equipment. A little interference is probably OK, yet if it “buries-the-needle”, that would cause me, at least, to question it’s state of repair.
          For a giggle, tune into AM, then operate a remote-control near it. Digital camera/camcorder/’smart’phone may clearly show the output of the IR diodes.

          Anyway, if you put the AM radio close to a CCFL monitor, it should get pretty loud.
          IIRC, electric field strength varies inversely with the square of distance, somewhat like external radiological exposure varies inversely with the square of distance. Meaning, the closer you are, the more exposure one receives. This is one reason, of course, that internal emitters are “wormwood” to the living.

          • … wondering why my right-hand sometimes ached after surfing
            used the AM radio to diagnose a malfunctioning mouse!

            Of course all electronics are by and large going to emit some EMI, yet the malfunctioning junk causes all-kinds of suffering that goes unnoticed, unreported, uncorrected, like so many other abominable topics.
            I would think that battery-operated gear may produce less EMI but are much less “site-secure” generally.
            The worst of privacy intrusions though for many things “electronic” are only a “Terms-Of-Agreement” read away!

      • Anti-HIV-1 activity of a new scorpion venom peptide:

        That “slippery-slope” is fully-set for free-fall now, imho. Enter the “vaccine-to-end-all-vaccines” (not that HPA-vac might be well on it’s way)? When will i ever see a clinic that actually holds it’s patients 15min just in case of anaphylactic shock.
        Mental Note to Self: Look up death statistics concerning Doctors versus car crashes again.
        HIV vaccine, eh? Like that’ll make people more responsible concerning communal nocturnal natures.

  2. I also wonder when they are going to tell raw-milk “operators” etc., what it is that is and was a major concern. That is, bio-accumulation of overseas industrial Mega-Disaster remnants that coincidentally generate their own static-electric charge (depending on var. factors). Let’s talk about the ultimate in Free-Radicals, eh?
    Maybe HIV is more susceptible itself to attack now, as are many other life forms upon this thin-shelled home of ours.
    Still can’t see why so many in industry are so thick-skulled, yet i suspect that “business”, like driving an automobile, is detrimental to one’s own intellect. Is it true that the worst of drivers make for more “successful” businesspeople?
