NIAID-Supported Scientists Demonstrate Very Early Formation of SIV Reservoir
NIAID-supported researchers report that SIV can become entrenched in monkey tissues fewer than 3 days after infection, before the virus is detectable in blood plasma or blood cells. The study findings indicate that very early antiretroviral therapy can have only a limited effect on preventing SIV reservoir formation.
