12 years without treatment and HIV regresses

For the first time ever, there has been a regression of HIV in a human being despite withdrawal of treatment during childhood.

An 18-year-old French girl, infected at birth by her mother, was treated for only the first six years of her life. The Pasteur Institute announced the extraordinary phenomenon, which raises questions about the long-term benefits of early treatment. However, the institute emphasises that this is not a cure, since the virus is always present and it is not possible to predict how it will develop.
