HIV resurfaces in Canadian child after break in drug treatment

A Canadian child who doctors previously believed had been rid of HIV has had the virus resurface after going off medication for a short period of time — an outcome which some researchers are calling a “cautionary tale” for those trying to rid the disease among its youngest victims.

The child is one of five Canadian kids infected with HIV at birth who was treated early and aggressively with combination antiretroviral therapy (cART) in the first 24 hours of life, as well as continued treatment thereafter.

CART is a combination of drugs that helps to keep HIV infections under control. After treatment, researchers say the virus was undetectable in the blood of the five children, and they were reported to be in good health.

But one of the children went off cART at the age of three years and three months, according to new research that was presented Saturday at a medical conference in Newfoundland.

Just two weeks after going off the medication, HIV was found to be present in the child’s blood again.

“Soon after stopping the medication, we did start to see signs of the virus back in the child’s blood, and that’s why we’re calling it a cautionary tale,” Dr. Lindy Samson, of the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO), told CTV News.

Doctors say the study – which has not been published in a peer-reviewed medical journal – suggests that HIV can hide a child’s system, even though copies of it cannot be found in their blood.

The virus can hide for a number of years, said Dr. Ari Bitnun, from Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children.

“There can be virus hiding in a single cell or a very few number of cells somewhere in the body, and maybe a year, two years, three years from now, it will reactivate,” he said.

For some doctors, the news was a major setback in what had initially been pegged as a possible cure for the virus. But for others, it’s additional information that may eventually help to wipe out the disease in its youngest sufferers.

“It’s a step in the right direction,” Bitnum told The Canadian Press. “It may be that (the treatment) will work for some babies and it won’t work for others.”

He said the results of the latest study add support to a U.S. case where doctors had thought they had “functionally cured” a baby born with HIV.

In 2010, a Mississippi baby born prematurely with a low level of the virus was given a three-drug regimen as treatment.

About three-and-a-half years later, U.S. doctors raised the prospect of a pediatric HIV cure when the child seemed to be virus-free two years after being taken off HIV drugs.

In Canada, doctors have been using a similar approach for a number of years to treat infants born to mothers with HIV.

CHEO’s Dr. Jason Brophy’s research group has looked at about 200 Canadian cases where babies were treated for the HIV virus, while trying to determine the best approach for treating babies infected with the virus.

He said in some cases, babies were treated in the first few hours of life, and others would start treatment a few months or years after birth, depending on when the HIV risk was identified,

“Not all children who start treatment at an early stage of infection will be cured,” Brophy said.

Meanwhile, according to data from the Canadian Perinatal HIV Surveillance Program, the number of infants born and confirmed to be HIV-infected has decreased gradually over time.

In 2012, there were no documented cases in Canada of vertical transmission of HIV (from mother to infant).

    Been a HIV positive is just like been through hell but EVERYTHING
    IS POSSIBLE. So amazing and i want to testify of the good work done by
    GREAT BABA a very strong and powerful spell caster. GREAT BABA has
    proved science and scientists wrong for believing and thinking that
    there is no cure for HIV AIDS but to be sincere this GREAT MAN is so
    real and powerful. I never thought that this spell will work but this
    GREAT MAN has proved it to me and it has worked and still working
    perfectly. My Name is Randy Scott and i was diagnosed of the deadly
    disease called HIV AIDS in 2011 and i thought that is the end and there
    will be no hope. Speaking to anyone was always a problem because i was
    so worried and always in the state of unrest in fact i thought it was
    over until one blessed day when i was searching for help here on the
    internet, i came across a testimony about GREAT BABA on how he helped a
    lady who was HIV positive. At first i thought it was all a lie but i
    decided to give it a try since there was no option and, when i contacted
    this MAN he laughed and told me that, that is too small for him to
    handle but i was still in doubt, and he gave me a
    form to fill which I did, then he called me and told me that his gods
    required some items in which he will use in casting a curing spell on me
    and he told me that it will cost only $500, I sent him the money because I
    could not find the items. He bought the items and prepared a cure for
    me, and instructed me on what to do and i OBEYED him completely as he told me. Then he sent a parcel to me through the courier delivery service. I
    paid for the courier service, I got my parcel, it was a holy water and a pure holy oil as
    described by GREAT BABA. I took the holy water and the holy oil and after taking it, he told me to go for check up but
    I was still in doubt and was so afraid to go for the test but i took a
    bold step and believed that it is well, and i believed all what he has
    done and all that he has told me. So i went to the hospital for the test
    it was so amazing, awesome and exciting what seems to be impossible
    became possible, the VIRUS disappeared completely from my system and I was tested HIV negative. Quickly I called him and told him what
    happened he congratulated me and today i am a happy man again the way things use to be. Don’t you think that this testimony is worth sharing? I promise to tell the world about him and i
    will keep sharing this testimony till the end because many people has
    died of AIDS and i want many people who believed that it is over to know
    that EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE AND I WANT THEM TO GET HELP FROM THIS SPELL
    CASTER by contacting him on his email at Highersolutiontemple@yahoo.com
    for your solution now. If you are hiv positive and you think that it is
    over i want to tell you that there is hope for you and if you truly and
    dearly value your life please contact him now. THIS IS REAL HE IS NOT A
    SCAM, BELIEVE HIM AND DON’T ASK TOO MUCH QUESTIONS. Thank you GREAT
    BABA and May your good gods keep rewarding you for your good deeds.
