Abstract

Despite the success of antiviral therapy for HIV infection, HIV cannot be cured and treatment is life long. In addition, there are complications in patients on long term antiviral therapy due to impaired immune recovery. This grant will identify strategies to eliminate HIV from latently infected cells that persist in patients on antiviral therapy as well as identify novel ways to improve the immune response to antiviral treatment for patients with HIV infection as well as patients co-infected with hepatitis B virus (HBV)
