Narrator: This is NIH health matters, I’m Joe Balintfy. HIV/AIDS research has made significant advances in the past 30 years. Dr. Anthony Fauci at the NIH says, half of his early patients died within six to eight months.
Fauci: Now, if a person walks into our clinic at the NIH, or any other place that has availability of treatment, is young, 25, been recently infected, you put them on combination therapy and you can look them in the eye and tell them that it is likely that if they adhere to that regimen, that they will live an additional 50 years.
Narrator: For more on HIV/AIDS research advances, visit www.niaid.nih.gov. Health Matters is produced by the National Institutes of Health, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
