Researchers Present Early Data On New Treatment Approaches And Drugs For HIV (AIDS 2010)

The AIDS Beacon: "Several innovative but preliminary treatment approaches were presented Monday at the 2010 International AIDS Conference currently underway in Vienna, Austria. Presentations included the results of animal and laboratory studies on novel drugs and new generations of traditional therapies.

"Two of the studies focused on methods to completely eliminate HIV from the body. More specifically, they targeted latent HIV – HIV that lies dormant in infected cells and can start multiplying again if antiretroviral therapy is stopped."
