HIV-infected girl in remission sends whisper of AIDS cure

 Critics in the medical field say not so fast — it’s too soon to tell.

But the girl’s recovery is tremendous. In fact, the girl, 3, is now so healthy that doctors had to double check that she had been truly born with the disease — that the tests weren’t positive simply because she was exposed to the virus in her mother’s blood, The Associated Press reported.

The New England Journal of Medicine clarified, however, in a Wednesday report that the girl was truly infected. She underwent aggressive treatment for 18 months. The treatments and medicines were halted and since, she’s shown no signs of active infection.
