Are the antiretroviral drugs used after accidental exposure of the person to the virus?
In Brazil it is recommended after occupational accidents when doctors or nursing staff are hurt with a needle or sharp object contaminated, or victims of rape.
In some countries, like France, has also been recommended after intercourse without condoms with infected partner. Ideal to start treatment with the cocktail Moment: Nobody knows what is right for the start of therapy time.
The decision will depend on the health of the person and the line taken by medical science.
In Brazil, there is a consensus prepared by staff of the Ministry of Health, according to which drugs should be given when the viral load and CD4 overcome 100.000/ml become less than 500/ml.
People with CD4 greater than 500/ml should only start therapy when the viral load is greater than 100,000 copies / ml
Combination therapy has shown good results in different stages of infection (those with or without symptoms). This means that there is no evidence of a relationship between time and better results.
HIV infects cells of the immune system (mainly CD4 cells) and uses them to make new copies of the virus. These copies then continue infecting other cells nearby.
Over time, it decreases the body's ability to fight infections
