NIAID/NIH have decided to invest 70 million USD in the search of an HIV cure within the next 5 years

Professor Robert Siliciano from Baltimore developped recently published data of his group on the fact that even if HIV is reactivated from latency, cells do not die due to an insufficient or impaired immune response
hs-CRP, D-Dimers, IL-6 were predictors of AIDS and non-AIDS related events in the SMART trials, and that s CD14 levels are an independent marker of death in HIV disease. During c-ART, immune activation persists, in particular in tissues, contributing to low thymic outpout, lymphoid tissue fibrosis, poor immune reconstitution, T/B cell dysfunction and mucosal damage.
