Mississippi Baby Still HIV-Negative

Earlier this year, the media broke an exciting HIV-related story: For the first time ever, a baby born with HIV was “cured” of the virus without taking AIDS meds for the recommended time after birth. In a new case study, researchers say that the toddler, who is from Mississippi, is still HIV-negative.
