The reactivation research strategy is to pharmacologically reactivate the HIV expression within those latent cells, thereby expressing the HIV proteins and making the cell a target for pharmacologic or immune elimination.
Our previous report on the massive loss of sulfur in HIV-infected subjects and the present demonstration of the immunoreconstituting effect of cysteine supplementation indicate that the HIV-induced cysteine depletion is a novel mechanism by which a virus destroys the immune defense of the host and escapes immune elimination.
The unique hypothesis tested in this study is that with a novel antiretroviral therapy combination complemented by entry and integrase inhibitors, the induction of viral replication from quiescent CD4+ T cells can be contained by the complementary HIV inhibitors while remaining sufficient to expose infected cells to immune elimination, eventually contributing to viral reservoir reduction and potential eradication.
