is it not possible that as one takes anti rotroviral drugs the virus get to die?
| Response from Dr. Holodniy
Partially true. Ongoing replication of the virus stops for the most part with HIV treatment, but a form of the virus continues to exist inside blood and other cells that maintains the infection. that's why HIV treatment is effective at stopping the virus from multiplying but not getting rid of these cells that contain the virus in them.
