OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to identify candidate host epigenetic biomarkers predicting latency reversal agents (LRA) efficacy and HIV-1 rebound kinetics during analytical treatment interruption (ATI). DESIGN: Retrospective longitudinal epigenetic profiling study from 13 people with HIV (PWH) on virologically suppressive antiretroviral therapy (ART) that participated in a LRA (HDAC inhibitor) clinical trial (NCT01680094) and a subsequent optional ATI to monitor for viral recrudescence after ART cessation. METHODS: Genome-wide DNA methylation (DNAm) in purified CD4+ T cells was measured at single-nucleotide resolution using the Infinium MethylationEPIC array. HIV-1 DNA and RNA measures were p..
