HIV treatment: Cure may have been found after man goes into 'long-term remission'

A Brazilian man in his mid-30s with HIV has gone into long-term remission after treatment with drugs alone.

It is thought to be the first case of a HIV patient going into remission following pharmaceutical treatment.

Doctors report that the patient was prescribed an intense multi-drug cocktail of AIDS medicines, including antiretroviral therapy, or ART.

It was also supplemented with additional antiretrovirals, plus a drug called nicotinamide, a form of vitamin B3.
