Starting antiretroviral therapy (ART) very soon after infection may limit the size of the HIV 'reservoir' and delay viral rebound after treatment interruption, according to several presentations at the recent Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI 2015) in Seattle, USA. Other research showed that various biomarkers may predict who will experience HIV rebound after

Researchers at the recent Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI 2015) in Seattle, USA, presented data on several experimental agents that may play a role in achieving a 'functional cure' for HIV, or prolonged remission without disease progression. These include drugs that reactivate the latent HIV reservoir, interfere with expression of viral DNA and help

Screening and treatment for cryptococcal meningitis combined with a short period of adherence support has the potential to significantly reduce mortality rates among people with very low CD4 counts starting antiretroviral therapy (ART) in resource-limited settings, investigators report in The Lancet. Twelve-month mortality rates were 28% lower for patients who received the enhanced care package including
