CROI 2014: The Latest on HIV Cure Research (Video)

By Warren Tong

March 11, 2014

HIV activist and educator Matt Sharp sits down to talk with Nicolas Chomont, Ph.D., from the Vaccine & Gene Therapy Institute of Florida, and Sharon Lewin, M.D., about some of the latest HIV cure research coming out of CROI 2014. The three discuss how the complexity of different types of latently infected cells is pushing the field forward in developing better tools and assays to detect and eradicate the HIV reservoir. They also talk about the updated case of the "Mississippi Baby," as well as the results on a second child who may also be cured after very early treatment after birth.
