Summary

New treatments have allowed scientists to beat down HIV in the blood, raising hopes of attacking the virus's other bastions, which so far have remained beyond the reach of anti-HIV drugs. A report in this week's issue (p. 960) shows that a triple-drug combination therapy can dramatically reduce the amount of HIV in the lymph nodes. And two other reports offer insights into how HIV's other redoubts might finally be conquered.
