Scientists say a baby born in Mississippi with the AIDS virus appears to have been cured.

The child, who is now two and a half, was treated with anti-viral drugs within 30 hours of her birth. Doctors say she now has no signs of infection.

If the child remains healthy, it would mark the second reported cure for the disease.
