HIV Treatment Naive Studies

 Most people who receive treatment and take their medications as directed have a good result. This is usually determined by measuring the amount of HIV in the blood (viral load). The best response is when HIV cannot be found (less than 50 copies/mL) in the blood. This is also called undetectable. However, it has recently become clear that some people with HIV who are receiving effective HIV drugs continue to have more health problems than people without HIV infection. Sometimes there is damage to organs in the body, including bones, kidneys and the brain.

If you have never taken medications to treat your HIV, or you have only taken HIV medications for a short period of time, the UCLA CARE Center has studies that may be of interest to you:
