Abstract

Although anti-retroviral drug therapy can suppress HIV viral replication, it is not a cure. Martinez-Navio et al. report the functional cure of the “Miami monkey,” in which long-term SHIV suppression was achieved after a single administration of adeno-associated viruses (AAVs) encoding broadly neutralizing antibodies. They also report that host-generated anti-antibodies can hamper the applicability of this approach.
