Global health R&D at work in Pennsylvania

Once HIV therapy is working, HIV can lie dormant in immune cells at low levels. It is critical to determine if this latent HIV reservoir, often containing damaged HIV, could create more virus and cause relapse if treatment is stopped. Now researchers at the University of Pittsburgh have created a test to detect this “hidden” HIV. The test is faster, easier on patients, less labor-intensive, less expensive, and more sensitive than the current gold-standard test.
