Treatment Reduces the Amount of HIV in the Blood

Taking your HIV medicine as prescribed will help keep your viral load low and your CD4 cell count high. HIV medicine can make the viral load very low (called viral suppression). Viral suppression is defined as having less than 200 copies of HIV per milliliter of blood.

HIV drugs provide the body with a strong defense against the reproduction of HIV; however, they do not kill the virus. Generally HIV converts into proviral DNA within 72 hours after infection. Once inside the cell's DNA, HIV awaits activation by cytokines and chemokines, chemical substances that tell cells what to do.

HIV attacks and destroys the infection-fighting CD4 cells of the immune system. Loss of CD4 cells makes it hard for the body to fight off infections and certain HIV-related cancers. HIV medicines prevent HIV from multiplying (making copies of itself), which reduces the amount of HIV in the body (called the viral load).

FDA-Approved HIV Medicines. Treatment with HIV medicines is called antiretroviral therapy (ART). ART is recommended for everyone with HIV, and people with HIV should start ART as soon as possible. People on ART take a combination of HIV medicines (called an HIV treatment regimen) every day.

HIV causes disease by depleting immune cells, called CD4 T-cells, that the body needs for an effective immune response. As their numbers are depleted, the body's ability to fight disease diminishes, leaving it vulnerable to an ever-widening range of opportunistic infections.
