Perinatal HIV Remission Possibilities

HIV-infected infants that are started on ARVs early show low levels of replication-competent provirus, an absence of HIV-specific immunity, and the capacity to generate immune responses to potential immunotherapeutic interventions according to recent research. Current studies are examining ways to keep perinatally-infected infants from having to be on ARVs for the remainder of their lives.
