While there is excellent treatment available for HIV, treatment is lifelong and there is not a cure. The major goal of current research is to define the molecular and cellular mechanisms that lead to long term persistence of HIV on treatment, in the form of HIV latency and to use interventions that can reverse latency in patients on antiretroviral therapy. Recent advances in our understanding of latency and rare case reports of remission following cessation of treatment have raised optimism that a cure for HIV may be achievable.
