A human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1)–infected elite controller (defined as an untreated HIV-1–infected person with a plasma HIV-1 RNA level <50 copies/mL for at least 12 months) who experienced a viremic episode after superinfection regained natural viremic control, although the viral loads in the patient's 2 partners, infected with the same viral strain, were continuously 30-fold higher. Thus, host mechanisms seem to be able to repeatedly control HIV-1 replication, halting disease progression.

    There is increasing evidence of the transmission of HIV strains with resistance to anti-HIV drugs in low- and middle-income countries. Research in eleven sub-Saharan African countries showed that the chances of detecting transmitted resistance increased by over a third each year that a country had been scaling up HIV treatment. A separate study involving people recently diagnosed

    A new type of anti-HIV drug that targets the first step in HIV’s entry into cells has done well in a Phase IIa study. Currently known as BMS-663068, the drug was shown to be safe and to work against the virus. HIV cell entry is a three-step process. The virus must first attach to the
