NIH To Launch Global Study In Attempt To Replicate ‘Mississippi Baby’ Results

Scientific American: HIV on Trial: An Attempt to Cure the World’s Smallest Patients
“…Through a series of rare circumstances the so-called ‘Mississippi baby’ began standard HIV treatment 30 hours after birth, but the potent drug cocktail regimen was abruptly halted when the child was 18 months old. Surprisingly, even after treatment stopped the child’s blood plasma continued to show no signs of the virus. … This month the NIH expects to launch a global study that will attempt to replicate the Mississippi baby results…” (Maron, 6/16).
