    Newfound variant of HIV progresses to AIDS faster and may be more transmissible


    Without treatment, infections with the VB variant would likely progress to AIDS, on average, within two to three years of a person’s initial HIV diagnosis, researchers reported Thursday (Feb. 3) in the journal Science. With other versions of the virus, a similar degree of decline occurs about six to seven years after diagnosis, on average.”


    Thankfully, in their study, the team found that antiretroviral drugs, the standard treatment for HIV, work just as well against the VB variant as they do against other versions of the virus.”
