Early HIV Therapy Boosts Children's Survival


Starting anti-HIV treatment soon after birth is clearly the best means of ensuring infected children's survival, a new trial finds.
In fact, the African study was stopped four years early after researchers found that 96 percent of HIV-positive infants who received immediate treatment survived, compared to 84 percent of those who waited longer to get the drugs.
Currently, doctors in the developing world typically take the delayed approach, waiting until serious symptoms develop before prescribing medications.
That could all change, based on these findings.
