Recent experiments indicate that one of the likely reasons of the failure of eradication of HIV is in infection of hematopoietic progenitor cells. Such cells are nurtured in stem-cell niches residing in the bone marrow. Our generic four-variable kinetic model focused on this ingredient of HIV infection describes (i) a rapid increase of the population of infected CD4(+) T cells at the beginning of verimia, (ii) a sharp decline of this population due to immunological control, (iii) a long period of latency followed by a collapse of the immune system, and (iv) predicts that in the case of the therapy fully eradicating infected CD4(+) T cells the infection starts rapidly again after the therapy.
