HIV Reservoirs Knowledge Strengthens the Hope for an HIV Cure

In their paper published this month (The Search for a Cure for Persistent HIV Reservoirs. AIDS Rev. 2011; 13: 63-6), Doctors Alain Lafeuillade (France) and Mario Stevenson (USA) first recap progress recently achieved in understanding the mechanisms of HIV persistence. Then, they define two main questions to be urgently addressed: the exact nature of the non-lymphocytic HIV reservoirs, and the threshold below which new strategies will have to drive the HIV reservoir to contain it. Finally, they draw what should be the priorities in terms of clinical trials for a cure and call for a higher commitment from funding organizations to win this race
