Triple therapy

The ABC

TRIPLE THERAPY
June 16th, 2011

Current antiretroviral therapies cannot cure HIV infection.

Triple therapy, consisting of three medications that attack HIV in at least two different ways, aims to:
. eliminate the plasma viral load, or in other words, reduce the amount of virus in the blood until it cannot be detected with current tests;
. keep the viral load undetectable as long as possible;
. rebuild the immune system to reduce the risk of infections;
. prolong life;
. improve quality of life;
. prevent HIV transmission.
