    Highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) results in potent and durable suppression of HIV-1 viremia. However, HIV-1 replication resumes if therapy is interrupted. Although it is generally believed that active replication has been halted in individuals on HAART, immune activation and...

    In this international prospective cohort of 165 individuals coinfected with HIV and hepatitis B virus (HBV), 3 patterns of suboptimal response to tenofovir therapy were identified: persistent viremia, viral rebound, and viral blips. Suboptimal adherence was associated with detectable HBV DNA,...

    Highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) significantly reduces HIV-1 replication and prevents progression to AIDS. However, residual low-level viremia (LLV) persists and long-lived viral reservoirs are maintained in anatomical sites. These reservoirs permit a recrudescence of viremia upon...

    Coinfection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and the hepatitis C virus (HCV) is highly prevalent in southern Europe. However, there are few and contradictory data about the effect of HCV carriage on the response to highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). In this study, the...

    Background: Despite the benefits of highly active antitretroviral therapy (HAART) for suppressing viral replication in HIV infection, virus persists and rebounds during treatment interruption (TI). This study explored whether HAART intensification with Remuneâ„¢ vaccination before TI can...
