New York, NY (PRWEB) January 06, 2014
Gabriel Pediatrics, a NY-based comprehensive pediatric care practice, responds to an article published by HealthDay on December 24th, which reports that the current state of pediatric AIDS has decreased substantially over recent years.
According to the article published by HealthDay titled “Big Strides in Battle Against Pediatric AIDS,” children contracting AIDS from their mothers have decreased to less than 1 percent in the United States. Unfortunately, the number of infections in teens has increased, and doctors are trying to spread as much awareness as possible so teens can be safe.
The article says medicine involved in treating HIV in children can be a tedious task, but its improvement over the last few years has scientists thrilled with what potential they have. The treatment is a lot of work because the medication needs to be taken regularly and missing one day could be extremely hurtful in the long run. Recently, the article says there was a baby who transmitted HIV from their mother, and after treatment, they were in long-term remission within 30 hours of birth. Scientists, however, remain cautious due to the immense differences between how people deal with HIV.
Michael Gabriel of Gabriel Pediatrics believes that with steady progression, there’s the battle against pediatric AIDS will continue to decrease. “The improvement in treatment has been so consistent that there’s more hope for a cure or vaccine in the future. Every day there are scientists learning more and more about how to treat the transmission of HIV from mother to child, and hopefully it will become an obsolete disease.”
