From the January 30, 2019, edition of (online) Science Daily (HIV/AIDS subject area):

Story Summary: Scientists have developed a new assay to accurately and easily count the cells that comprise the HIV reservoir, the stubborn obstacle to an HIV cure. This advance will enable researchers who are trying to eliminate the HIV reservoir to clearly understand whether their strategies are working.

Another version of the same story (from the February 4, 2019, edition of POZ online magazine):

https://www.poz.com/article/new-accurate-hiv-reservoir-test-big-advance-cure-research

Lede paragraph:  Researchers have developed a new test to measure the size of the HIV viral reservoir that is 10 to 100 times more accurate, not to mention faster, than an assay that is commonly in use. The scientistsí successful efforts represent a considerable advancement for the HIV cure field, given how crucial it is for researchers to be able to quickly and accurately measure how a particular experimental cure therapy affects the reservoir.
