Mechanisms & Models of Virus Control

Mechanisms & Models of Virus Control

“Elite controllers (ECs)” are individuals capable of suppressing HIV without antiretroviral therapy (ART). ECs are critical proof that the human immune system itself can control HIV. But the mechanisms that permit this distinct profile in perhaps 0.5% of all HIV-infected individuals are unclear. Researchers are also investigating if long-term treatment can lead to ART-free control of HIV.
