Background. A major obstacle to curing HIV infection is persistence of virus as integrated proviral DNA in long-lived cells even after many years on ART. ART-free HIV remission is more likely to occur if viral suppression is achieved very early in infection. We investigated factors associated with time to virological suppression in early ART treated children from the European Pregnancy and Paediatric HIV Cohort Collaboration (EPPICC).
