HIV, or human immunodeficiency virus, is the virus that causes AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) and can be transmitted during sexual intercourse; by sharing syringes; or perinatally during pregnancy, childbirth or breastfeeding. Since the first AIDS cases were reported in , HIV/AIDS has been one of humanity’s deadliest and most persistent epidemics. The Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention (DHAP) is pleased to present its updated Strategic Plan – This Plan is DHAP’s blueprint for achieving its vision of a future free of HIV. The Plan encompasses the strategic aspects of the Division’s work and will continue to serve as a practical.

“‘New Drug Development: An Introduction to Clinical Trials, 2 nd Edition’ is a solid introduction to the process of drug development, with an emphasis on clinical research, especially the statistical aspects. It is ideal for readers interested in clinical research within the broader context.

Posted: Septem Background. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) supports a program of longitudinal cohorts to address emerging and high priority research on HIV/AIDS in the context of injection and non-injection substance abuse.   Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest public health challenges of our time. Each year in the U.S., at least million people get an antibiotic-resistant infection, and more t people die.

AIDS Drug Assistance Programs are a set of programs in all states in the United States that provide Food and Drug Administration-approved HIV treatment drugs to low income patients in the U.S.. The programs are administered by each state with funds distributed by the United States government. In June the program provided coverage for , or 30% of those infected with HIV in the.   Through Medicaid and other programs, most poor people in the United States have access to the new AIDS drug therapies.

Subjects: AIDS (Disease) -- United States. Faced with the burgeoning HIV/AIDS epidemic in the s, NCI’s intramural program developed the first therapies to effectively treat the disease.

The NCI efforts drew upon its established expertise in virology, tumor biology and the immune system and was enabled by the inherent flexibility of the NIH intramural research program to respond quickly to new crises.

The discoveries of NCI. From throughthe Developmental Therapeutics Program (DTP) of the NCI maintained an anti-HIV screening program and screened many compounds, including many natural products. A repository of information on screening data and the chemical structures of the compounds screened are found on the DTP Website.

AZT proved ineffective against cancer and was shelved, but in the s, it was included in an NCI screening program to identify drugs to treat HIV/AIDS. In the laboratory, AZT suppressed HIV replication without damaging normal cells, and the British pharmaceutical company Burroughs Wellcome funded a clinical trial to evaluate the drug in.

Today, most of DTP’s drug discovery and development services are available for academic and private researchers through applying for NCI Experimental Therapeutic program (NExT). Under this new framework, DTP continues to help academic and private sectors to overcome financial and technical barriers, particularly through supporting high-risk.

The scientific facts about AZT and AIDS are indeed astonishing. Most ironically, the drug has been found to accelerate the very process it was said to prevent: the loss of T-4 cells. CENTER FOR CANCER RESEARCH.
