Abstract

Although ART suppresses HIV-1 replication below the threshold of conventional methods of measurement of plasma viraemia, it does not eradicate the virus; HIV-1 is capable of residual replication and/or viral production under ART. The latent HIV-1 reservoir is thought to be largely responsible for this rebound, because the reservoir size not only undermines clinical progression in people living with HIV who are under treatment, but also predicts time to viral rebound.
