"Quantifying Latent Viral Reservoirs: Tools for HIV Cure Research"

ABSTRACT: HIV-1 infection is incurable. Infection by the virus results in the establishment of a stable viral reservoir that fuels subsequent viral replication cycles. Lifelong antiretroviral treatment is required to suppress the virus from further replicating. In the absence of treatment, infected individuals would progress to develop acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). There has been a recent surge of research interest to find a cure to HIV-1 infection by eliminating the viral reservoirs in infected patients. In this lecture, Dr. Guinevere Lee, a HIV geneticist, will discuss methods to quantify and characterize HIV-1 viral reservoirs. Issues such as viral genotypic diversity, sensitivity, specificity, sampling depth, and cost will be discussed in the context of applications in clinical trials.
