Profound depletion of HIV-1 transcription in patients initiating antiretroviral therapy during acute infection. PLoS ONE, 5(10):e13310.
Early intervention resulted in profound depletion of PBMC expressing HIV-1 RNA. This is contrary to chronically infected patients who predominantly showed continuous UsRNA expression on cART. Thus, antiretroviral treatment initiated during the acute phase of infection prevented establishment or expansion of long-lived transcriptionally active viral cellular reservoirs in peripheral blood.
