    French scientists say they have found evidence of an effective HIV cure among adults, if they are treated quickly after infection. The study looked at 14 patients, whose bodies have been able to control the virus, even after they stopped taking medication. It follows the so-called 'functional cure' of a baby girl in the US. Speaking to Al Jazeera from London, Sarah Radcliffe, from the UK's National AIDS Trust, said the findings are another step in the road to a full cure for HIV and AIDS.
