Drug cocktail therapy

Postby Adz795 » Fri May 20, 2011 6:51 pm

I want to ask, does using a "cocktail" of drugs really work against HIV?
Is HIV similar a superbug?
Has it ever been countered any technique?

It does work, it just doesn't eliminate it.

HIV isn't a superbug, it's just a virus that can eliminate your natural defenses against it.

Then what does eliminate this seemingly immortal virus?

Look for work of prof. Antonín Holý, whose drug should work alone. But I don't remember the name now.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

The major problem with HIV is that they destroy the body's immune system and get mutated easily so that the drug given shows very less effect. Cocktail, thus, may or may not help 100 percent.
