"Before the latent HIV reservoir can be eradicated, clinicians must be able to measure it. "Right now, the assays we have to measure it are expensive, require a lot of blood, and we are not exactly sure what they measure," Nicolas Chomont, PhD, from the Vaccine & Gene Therapy Institute of Florida in Port Sainte Lucie, said during the news conference.
A reported scientific priority for the International AIDS Society has been to develop assays that can measure the size of the reservoir. Dr. Chomont's team has come up with a novel assay they call the Tat/Rev Induced Limiting Dilution Assay, or TILDA."
