    Abstract: Despite the efficiency of the antiretroviral treatment, the infection caused by HIV remains to be incurable. Different strategies are being developed to tackle the viral reservoir that constitute the actual unsurmountable obstacle for the cure. The better is the understanding about how the reservoir is formed and maintained, the better chance we have to destroy it.

    Abstract : A pesar de la eficacia del tratamiento antirretroviral, la infección por VIH sigue siendo incurable. Se están estudiando distintas estrategias para destruir el reservorio viral que constituye el verdadero obstáculo para conseguir la curación. Cuanto mejor sea nuestra comprensión de cómo se forma y se mantiene el reservorio, más posibilidades tendremos de destruirlo.
