Can We Ever Cure HIV?

from Medscape

An interesting Medscape HIV interview and conversation between two scholars, Dr. Paul Sax, Clinical Director of the HIV Program at Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston and the Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and one of his colleagues, Dr. Dan Kuritzkes, professor at Harvard University and Harvard Medical School and also Director of AIDS Research.

Different Strategies are proposed for finding a cure:

  • Purging the reservoir by activation with the potential of unwanted consequences of immune activation
  • Silencing the virus so it could never turn on again
  • Bone marrow transplantation
