A CROI 2019 study suggests the dynamics of HIV proliferation in the viral reservoir might explain why viral load sometimes fails to become undetectable, especially when adherence is good.
Dolutegravir More Effective Than Efavirenz at Achieving Viral Suppression During Late-Term Pregnancy, New Study Shows
Unlike some previous studies that focused on early pregnancy, this study showed no associated congenital disabilities with either drug.
Richard Jefferys, an expert in HIV cure research, spoke to TheBodyPro about this new case of HIV remission -- and the danger in rushing to publish these stories, especially for people who live with stigma.
UK Patient Likely to Be the Second Person Cured of HIV: Two Further Cases at CROI 2019 of HIV Remission After Allogenic Stem Cell Transplants
The procedure used in this case was similar to that used in the only previously confirmed HIV cure case, "Berlin patient" Timothy Ray Brown, albeit with a somewhat less aggressive approach.
TheBodyPro is covering all the latest in HIV science at the biggest annual gathering of HIV researchers in the U.S. Here's a preview of what's to come.
Biomarkers of immune exhaustion were associated with how long a patient was able to control HIV after treatment was interrupted, according to a study presented at CROI 2015.
In addition to studies covered in prior posts (a possible second pediatric cure case, Sangamo's gene therapy and limitations of latency-reversing agents), CROI 2014 featured a smorgasbord of presentations related to pathogenesis and cure research. We...
A particular type of mutation renders people with HIV effectively immune to most strains of the virus. (The "Berlin patient," Timothy Brown, was essentially "given" this type of mutation.) But as a new case report shows, these individuals are still v...
This study compared a small group of HIV-infected women with matched HIV-uninfected controls and found that HIV-infected women had similar levels of immune activation of monocytes compared to HIV-uninfected women 16 years older.
Monocytes are critic...
