    Spontaneous Long-term Persistent Elite HIV-control: The Right Model of Functional Cure

    Control espontáneo persistente de élite del VIH a largo plazo: el modelo correcto de cura funcional

    Authors: Ezequiel Ruiz-Mateos

    Keywords: HIV. Controller. Cure

    Abstract: HIV elite controller (EC) is a heterogeneous phenotype. Some of these subjects show long-term persistent elite control with absence of viral blips, low levels of HIV reservoir, high HIV-specific T-cell response and low levels of inflammation compared to transient controllers, subjects that eventually lose spontaneous viral control. This long-term spontaneous control for more than 30 years in some cases can be considered the right model of functional cure.
