Structured treatment interruption (STI) has been investigated for three distinct clinical scenarios: during acute infection with the goal of immune reconstitution and auto immunization; during chronic infection, to decrease the amount and toxicity of antiretroviral drugs; and during virologic failure to restore response to subsequent antiretroviral therapy. The potential costs and benefits of STI should be determined.
