Baby born with HIV apparently cured
WASHINGTON - There's promising news in the search for better ways to fight pediatric AIDS.

The child is now 2½ and has been off HIV drugs for about a year with no signs of infection.
If the child remains healthy, it would mark only the world's second reported cure.
