Towards AIDS eradication

New paths against drug resistance

With the collaboration of:
  • Obra Social La Caixa

What role does HIV drug resistance have in current treatments? Can this resistance be passed from one individual to another? Laboratories are looking for new drugs which act on the different stages of the replication cycle.

In this three videos: "HIV, the virus with multiple changing faces","Joining efforts to find the HIV vaccine","New paths against drug resistance", I have learnt that many people are infected by the HIV and there are a lot of people investigating to know more about the disease to fight against it with new drugs, trying differents ways to achieve the solution. It is very difficult because the virus changes its genetical information leaving to be effective treatments and the drugs used.h
In the video I learnt that HIV is a very dangerous disease because if you have it, and you are infected by a normal non-problematic virus like a common catarrh, you can die because of it. This is why thousands of people die because of HIV and it is so important to discover a vaccine against it. I found out, to, that if you are going to have a baby and you have HIV, youcan pass the disease to your son.
