Largest study of 'post-treatment controllers' reveals clues about HIV remission: Some HIV patients maintain low viral loads after stopping treatment; early treatment and HIV reservoir size may be the
Most HIV patients need to take daily anti-retroviral therapy - if they suspend treatment, HIV will rebound within 3-4 weeks. Much remains unknown about this unique group of individuals, known as HIV post-treatment controllers, including how rare this ability is. They found these post-treatment controllers by sifting through data collected from over 700 participants in 14 clinical studies involving treatment interruption.
