Extract

Progress in the treatment of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and AIDS has been breathtaking. In the early 1980s, a diagnosis of AIDS was thought to be synonymous with death. Today, with available antiretroviral therapies, the life expectancy of HIV-infected persons nears that of age-matched uninfected persons.1
