    Discovery that latent virus reservoirs in T lymphocyte "central memory cells" may be key to curing HIV
    in the spotlight at the 20th Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (3/15/2013).

    Prompt treatment with ARVs after infection is diagnosed limits impact on T-"central memory cells."

    Interesting question is whether this concept of virus reservoirs in T-central memory cells applies in general to other types of chronic infections, i.e., herpesvirus, enterovirus, etc?
