  • Overview

    Chronic viral infections can manifest in two different ways: one group, such as Epstein-Barr virus, are immunologically contained after the acute infection. The other group, including HIV, lead to persistent viremia and progressive clinical disease.  Are there patients who are able to escape the latter without antiviral medications? The director of the Center for AIDS Research at Harvard Medical School, Dr. Bruce Walker, joins host Dr. Leslie Lundt to discuss these so-called "elite controllers."
