    Abstract: Antiretroviral therapy (ART) effectively controls HIV replication but cannot eliminate the viral reservoir. However, as time with ART progresses, the reservoir appears to change and become enriched in defective proviruses that do not produce new viruses. Further studies are needed to characterize the reservoir in each person with HIV.

Más estudios son necesarios para caracterizar el reservorio en cada persona con VIH.
