Description
Despite numerous efforts against HIV/AIDS, the number of people infected with HIV has been increasing, especially in Africa and Asia. As the nature of lentivirus, HIV persists,mutates frequently, and slowly causes AIDS in the presence of host defense mechanism. It is difficult, therefore, to repress the replication of viruses of this category. In this brief review,we summarize the current attempts to find therapeutic modalities for attacking HIV. These include chemotherapy (HAART as representative), vaccine, and gene therapy.
