{Symptoms and treatment for HIV/AIDS
Human immunodeficiency virus/ Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) is not any ordinary disease in itself. Both HIV symptoms and treatment veritably open up a Pandora’s Box of health issues on varied fronts for patients, caregivers. For instance:
·         Disease causative: HIV/AIDS causes numerous disease conditions such as tuberculosis, skin cancer, mouth ulcers, herpes, and hepatitis etc.
·         Symptomatic issues: Loss of weight, fatigue, mouth ulcers, diarrhoea, and nausea etc. are some of the most common HIV symptoms and treatment to alleviate these symptoms is the best treatment for HIV/AIDS.
·         Treatment side effects: Nausea, abnormal heartbeats, skin rash, bone pain, and diarrhoea are some common side effects of anti HIV/AIDS treatment.
Presently, conventional treatment for HIV/AIDS contains many antiviral drugs like protease inhibitors, nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors etc. Various novel methods of treatment for HIV/AIDS are being evolved to avoid long-term side effects of HIV/AIDS treatment.
Research findings on HIV/AIDS treatment:
Very recently, researchers from Harvard claimed to have solved the mystery of developing a vaccine as HIV/AIDS treatment. This vaccine is currently under experimental trial stages to be conducted in Africa. Indeed, its integration and availability would add a significant milestone to the advances of HIV/AIDS treatment.
