This disease still remains incurable. However, if patients take antiretroviral drugs, they totally control this viral illness. In a recent study that we've just completed, matching individuals with HIV with age-match controls without HIV, and then looking at all the numbers, different lymphocytes and so forth. We have now determined that most of the patients have restored their numbers equal to or greater than uninfected patients of the same age. So both the function and numbers have been completely restored with this chronic use of antiretroviral therapy.
