Emerging infectious diseases is an expression used to describe a number of new infectious diseases. Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) is such an example of an emerging infectious disease, where a severe variant of Corona virus spread across continents within a matter of weeks. Proteases of Infectious Agents collects reviews from leading experts describing the latest information on the properties of key enzymes from a variety of viruses, fungi, and parasites. Each chapter provides the critical facts needed to initiate a drug discovery effort in that particular area. Scientists finally may have been successful in finding a treatment which can help in preventing the transmission of the HIV virus sexually. A study found a way to end the AIDS epidemic by suppressing men with antiretroviral drugs who are infected by HIV and this suppression helps their partners stay safe from the infection. If the medicines would be successful then whoever . Science of HIV and AIDS Scientists and researchers have been studying HIV and AIDS since the s, and we now know a lot about them. However, HIV mutates very quickly and there are various strains of the virus making scientific advances in the field difficult.

The Journal of HIV and AIDS (JHA) focuses on remarkable advances in our understanding of HIV science and its clinical evolution and management alternatives, comprising anti-retroviral and palliative therapies, and public health policies to contain the viral Journal editors are particularly interested in the latest breakthroughs in the diagnosis and therapy of HIV/AIDS . The HIV field has been through three major therapeutic revolutions since the virus was first isolated in The first revolution was the introduction of protease inhibitors in , which, in combination with two nucleoside-analogue reverse-transcriptase inhibitors, produced highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) and greatly improved the prognosis of an otherwise uniformly . The first cases of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) were reported in the United States in the spring of By the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the virus that causes AIDS, had been isolated. Early in the U.S. HIV/AIDS pandemic, the role of substance abuse in the spread of AIDS was clearly established. Injection drug use (IDU) was identified as a direct .   HIV is spread through contact with the blood, semen, pre-seminal fluid, rectal fluids, vaginal fluids, or breast milk of a person with HIV. In the United States, HIV is spread mainly by having anal or vaginal sex or sharing injection drug equipment, such as needles, with a person who has HIV. Antiretroviral therapy (ART) is the use of HIV.

  HIV pandemic. An estimated 386 (334–460) million people live with HIV-1 worldwide, while about 25 million have died already. 1 In alone, there were 41 million new HIV-1 infections and 28 million AIDS deaths. 1 These estimates mask the dynamic nature of this evolving epidemic in relation to temporal changes, geographic distribution, magnitude, viral Cited by:   The passive infusion of such antibodies may also have a role in HIV prevention; studies of lentiviral infection in nonhuman primates have shown that passive infusion of antibodies can prevent infection. The infusion of “designer” antibodies also has been pursued as a therapy for HIV and other infections, including Ebola virus by: With HIV becoming the leading cause of infectious-disease mortality in Mainland China, this book focuses on tackling HIV/AIDS in the face of rapid political and economic change in China. Featuring contributions by over a dozen leading figures in the field, this book is the go-to text for any student or reader interested in how national and.   HIV and AIDS information and facts.
