Zayas Buesa, Juan Pedro
The HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is a very important disease in the world, with approximately 35 million people infected. In this study we have tried to expose the main characters of the virus, explaining the disease and the illness associated to the HIV. Besides, we have explained the antiretroviral treatments that are the most important weapon against the HIV. However, any of these treatments do not eliminate the HIV in the human body. For this reason, we have been looking for the new treatments and researches that have been development in the last years, including vaccines and genetic resistance. In addition, we have described the situation of the SIV (Simian Immunodeficiency Virus) in Africa, because it is the origin of the disease. The prevalence of the virus in primates population is something that have being studied for the last years, because it could be a new threat to the human population. Finally, we have proposed the researches lines that seems to be more effective and the ones that, in a future, could eliminate the virus in the human body.
