HIV and AIDS

the virus and how we fight it

The AIDS epidemic began a few decades ago and since then scientists have revealed the atomic structures of most of the molecules in HIV. Using these structures, researchers have designed new treatments for HIV infection, which are now part of effective drug regimens that halt the growth of the virus. Structures of HIV molecules also provide new hope for development of vaccines and methods to rid an infected individual of the latent virus.
