I know one person who is HIV+. Been that way for fifteen years but the last 5 years they haven't been able to detect it. I asked if he was cured. He doesn`t know. He keeps taking the medicine which is an insane $3,500 a month. Drug companies are pure evil.

@Gerry: Apparently it's been months and there are no traces of it in the baby, so it is effectively "cured." However, this in itself isn`t a cure for HIV, just a treatment that is very effective (seemingly) for very young infants.

If only... but no, this isn't a viable treatment. It`s way too soon to say the kid`s "cured". The virus can be anywhere in the body. Also, it`s possible the virus just hadn`t taken hold yet so this time it was killed off. But those same drugs have been used many, many times without curing.
