are there any more research regarding this drug in greatly reducing latent infected cells (dormant hiv cells), or possibly combining it with haart. last study i read, if accurate, a daily dosage for 16-18 weeks reduced dormant hiv cells by 75%...if taken long term, would it be possible to continue eradicate the remaining dormant cells?
