CURRENT TRENDS IN RESEARCH REGARDING A CONTROL FOR THE HUMAN IMMUNODEFICIENCY VIRUS

J. E. Hollenbeck

Abstract

The focus of this paper is explaining what current research is ongoing in AIDS and HIV treatment. The biomedical treatment of HIV and AIDS is based on three separate but integrated steps: use of antiviral drugs that will interfere with continuation of the HIV cycle; restoration of the immune system, and treatment of opportunistic infections and cancers. With improved treatment, growing experience among health professionals in caring for HIV-infected patients, improved access to health care, and the decrease in number of new HIV infections in the United States, Canada and Western Europe due to health education is part of the success in the fight against HIV.
