Abstract

HIV can enter a state of latency that allows it to persist for decades in antiretroviral drug-treated patients. In a recent Nature paper, Deng et al. (2015) show that this latent reservoir also contains a large number of cytotoxic T lymphocyte escape mutants, presenting another challenge to HIV cure efforts.
