Characterisation of the HIV-1 reservoir and the potential for viral eradication
The HIV-1 reservoir is the major barrier to eradication and cure of HIV-1 infection. The aim of this thesis was to characterise the HIV-1 reservoir in PHI and to investigate two potential reservoir clearance strategies.
Sensitive Q-PCR assays that quantify HIV-1 DNA reservoir level were developed and applied to characterise the HIV-1 reservoir in acutely infected patients enrolled in the SPARTAC trial. HIV-1 DNA levels were found to be a useful biomarker for predicting clinical prog...Expand abstract
