First case of prolonged remission (12 years) in an HIV-infected child


A young woman now aged 18 and a half, who at birth was HIV-infected via mother-to-child transmission, is in virological remission, despite not having taken any antiretroviral therapy for the last 12 years. This first case in the world of long-term remission in a child, monitored in the French ANRS pediatric cohort, is presented by Dr Asier Sáez-Cirión at the IAS conference in Vancouver.
