Lack of viral control and development of combination antiretroviral therapy escape mutations in macaques after bone marrow transplantation. AIDS (London, England), 29(13), 1597-606. (pubmed) (doi)
We have previously demonstrated robust control of simian/human immunodeficiency virus (SHIV1157-ipd3N4) viremia following administration of combination antiretroviral therapy (cART) in pigtailed macaques. Here, we sought to determine the safety of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) in cART-suppressed and unsuppressed animals.
