    It has been in the news here. As someone not in the medical field, while I think this is great news, I also think this is dangerous news. To lead with "Baby cured on HIV" then say that the baby is functionally cured because there is still a small amount of virus in the baby's blood stream.

    I would hope that research facilities around the globe would as for the doctor's findings to do even greater research towards a bonafide cure. And that the mother of this little girl would see the wisdom in keeping her child in a program to watch her progress. This story could have far reaching results if handled in the right manner. Fingers crossed. icon_wink.gif
