Is there medicine to treat HIV?

Antiretroviral treatment is widely available and effective in preventing AIDS and HIV-transmission in HIV+ individuals.

Currently, standard care for HIV infection is to take a daily antiretroviral medication to suppress the virus, preventing AIDS, and preventing transmission. AGT is working on a gene and cell therapy intended to be a functional cure that would only need to be taken once instead of requiring lifelong antiretroviral therapy. Until a new treatment is approved by the FDA, antiretroviral therapy is the only broadly accepted treatment for HIV.
