Molecular Mechanisms of HIV Disease Pathogenesis
Sponsor: National Institutes of
Goal: On therapy viral load decreases,
but once stopped viral load becomes high again. Where
is the virus waiting in the body when is it “undetectable”

the hospital for the procedure.
Recruiting: 10 people with viral
load over 50,000 c/mL and no serious illness.
