Abstract

Understanding of HIV reservoirs that can complicate and confound current approaches to antiretroviral therapy will require better resources than are currently available. Cavert and Haase propose the creation of tissue banks from HIV-positive individuals who have died from other causes such as accidents or trauma. They estimate that it might be possible to collect tissues from 10 to 30 individuals over a 2-year period at a cost of $1 million per year.
