AIDS research in Africa Can be Better with latest breakthrough in Science

Submitted by on July 30, 2013 – 12:00 amNo Comment




Doctors in the University of Mississippi medical Center have had a breakthrough in science by having a baby that has been cured of HIV. This baby is popularly called the “Mississippi Baby” and was born with HIV and then given antiretroviral drugs around 30 hours after birth. The baby is now around two years old and they confirm that the baby had not been on any medication since it was around a year and a half old. There was also no trace of any kind of re-active HIV, which is called the detectable viral load.

The researchers and the scientists have been quite occupied with understanding the case of this Mississippi baby and have been taking steps to prevent the transmission of HIV from mother to baby. There was a big gathering at the symposium organized in the month of June and the main theme was the Mississippi baby.

Now this miracle at the Mississippi is going to become a miracle in Durban. The symposium focused mainly on stopping HIV infections in the children and it had plans to have a procedure, which would identify the babies who are at a risk of infection of HIV, and it focused on meeting the challenges that are usually associated with stopping any kind of new HIV infections among the children.

There has been a visible reduce in the new kinds of HIV infections since the year 2009 and it has been now observed that most of them were from the sub Saharan African region.

Countries have also made considerable progress in preventing the transmission of HIV in the child from the mother. The deaths related to AIDS have considerably reduced in the past few years. There has been considerable progress in the expansion of antiretroviral therapy and the percentage of children showing improvement has been remarkable too.

Thus, the AIDS research in African countries can be better with this latest breakthrough in science.
