Response from Dr. Young

HAART stands for Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy. It really refers to potent, 3- or 4-drug therapies for HIV. HAART can be comprised of different drugs or classes of drugs-- triple nucleosides; combinations of two nucleosides with a non-nucleoside or with one or two protease inhibitors.
