Title / Titel Measurement of inducible HIV reservoir
PDF Abstract (PDF, 14 KB)
Summary / Zusammenfassung HIV cure is currently not achievable because of the early establishment of HIV reservoir(s) and its persistence despite effective antiretroviral therapy. Because novel strategies aim at eliminating these reservoirs, accurate quantification of viral reservoir(s) is needed. The SHCS program allows investigating and measuring the size of the reservoir in HIV+ individuals with well characterized HIV and treatment history.
