HIV-infected cells in the brain have generally been identified as macrophages. Clinical Syndromes The clinical syndrome of AIDS consists of recurrent severe opportunistic infections or unusual neoplasms. In 1982, the CDC published an original case definition of AIDS as the presence of a reliably diagnosed disease at least moderately indicative of an underlying cellular immune deficiency (Kaposi sarcoma in a patient younger than 60 years, PCP, or other opportunistic infection) and the absence of known causes of an underlying immune deficiency or of any other stage of resistance reported to be associated with the disease (immunosuppressive therapy, Iymphoreticular malignancy).
And virus budding. In response to the extremely high prices of many AIDS drugs. several states have established AIDS drug assistance programs. Also. many AIDS drug manufacturers now offer patient assistance programs to help patients locate sources for reimbursement or provide drugs free to patients who have no means of obtaining them. Multidrug therapy. or HAART. has been the standard of care since 1998 and usually involves drug regimens with 3 or more agents. To prevent early drug resistance. patients should be given all drugs simultaneously rather than sequentially.
EBV is epidemiologically associated with Burkitt lymphoma and nasopharyngeal carcinoma and has been reported in EBV-associated hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (EBV-HLH), also known as EBV-associated hemophagocytic syndrome, which develops mostly in children and young adults and may be fatal. EBV also has been reported as a cause of pediatriC acute renal failure. A highly sensitive PCR assay is available for detecting primary EBV infection and infectious mononucleosis. Treatment of acute disease is largely supportive, although the EBV DNA polymerase is sensitive to acyclovir and ganciclovir, which decrease viral replication in tissue culture.
