I question the elimination of HIV in the body through this procedure. ARV tx can get the viral load down to less than 40 (undetectable). However, the CSF is not effected by ARV tx as it is a closed system and ARV does not cross the blood brain barrier. How does a bone marrow transplant eliminate viral load in CSF?
