Aids treatment and drugs

Mar 5, 1998

Can you please give me a list on all the drugs and treatment for aids and exactly what they do?

Response from Mr. Sowadsky

Hi. Thank you for your question. What you are asking can literally fill an entire book. However, a very good report which reviews AIDS related drugs currently available in the USA (both approved, and those in clinical trials), has been published by the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA). This report is called, "New Medicines in Development for AIDS". To read through this report, go to PhRMA's website at

Keep in mind that the availability and approval of drugs are subject to change at any time. Drugs available in the USA may not be available in other countries (and visa versa). Drugs undergoing clinical trials may not be available to all people. Also remember that the safety and effectiveness of drugs in clinical trials are not fully known, until those clinicial trials are completed.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to call the Centers for Disease Control at 1.800.232.4636 (Nationwide).

Is the cocktail strategy viable over the long term?
