HIV patients partially cured with strong medications

A study in France is testing ways to apply a potent combination of drugs to partially eliminate the AIDS virus in early-stage patients. Research is being conducted by the Pasteur Institute in Paris, under the command of Dr. Asier Sáez-Cirión.

In the test, 70 people were selected to receive a combination of antiretroviral (cART) to keep the infection under control. Of this total of participants, 14 patients showed good results.

Treatment has had an effect on the immune system to the point that it is possible to stop common medicines, even if medical attention is still needed. Something similar happened a few days ago when a baby born with HIV was healed with the aid of strong medications about 30 hours after birth.
