Study: HIV can hide and grow in ‘sanctuaries’ in body after it’s undetectable in blood
Washington Post

A new study shows that HIV can still live and grow in the body even after disappearing from the blood following aggressive antiretroviral therapy.

The research, published Wednesday in the journal Nature, involved looking at samples of cells from the lymph nodes of three patients who appeared to have cleared the virus. The researchers found that cells in the lymph node tissue can still produce new virus and infect new target cells.
