Combined therapy provides better control of HIV

August 1, 2004

The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) attacks the immune system, particularly white blood cells known as CD4 T-cells. As a result, the immune system becomes less able to fight off infection and disease. The final stage of HIV infection is acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), but some people live with HIV for years or even decades before the disease progresses to AIDS.
