@Angillion is correct, a reservoir is simply a location or tissue that has a persistence of the latent virus, meaning it`s basically a place where HIV digs in and waits and replicates, safe from antiviral drugs. If you want to get rid of it, these reservoirs need to be cleaned.

It`s not bad for a newspaper. It`s no Daily Mail, that`s for sure.

Of course, almost all media sucks at reporting anything to do with science because accurate reporting requires knowledge few reporters would have and isn`t headline friendly.

The underlying idea is definitely valid. HIV can be killed in vivo but reinfection then occurs from reservoirs of latent HIV inside cells. If the reservoirs can be emptied by activating the HIV latent in them, a complete cure is possible.

The Danish clinical trial is real:

Registry entry

That sites pulls data directly from the offical European database of clinical trials, so it`s as reliable as publically available

I remember growing up in the 80`s when it first was news and how scary the whole time was. I hope it works as it`s something I never figured would be done in my lifetime.

Here`s hoping! I tried to find verification of this story in some major outlets like BBC, etc., but couldn`t. But did see it mentioned several times in former print outlets, so, here`s hoping it`s not only legit, but immanent.

People with AIDS will probably have to go to Europe to get the cure because big pharma will find a way to block or at least slow down approval in the US. Or, the treatment will cost more than most people can afford and it won`t be covered by insurance.
