Therapie und Immunprophylaxe der HIV-Infektion*

  • M. Vogt

  • W. Siegenthaler


Bei der Bekämpfung der AIDS-Epidemie wird eine wirksame Vakzine zur Prophylaxe einer Infektion mit dem Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV-1) dringend benötigt. Antivirale Substanzen sollen andererseits Krankheitssymptome und Tod bei bereits infizierten Personen verhindern. Besprochen werden anhand der einzelnen HIV-Replikationsschritte mögliche Angriffspunkte antiviraler Substanzen und die bisher verfügbaren Resultate experimenteller und klinischer Studien. Die heute vorliegenden Vakzine-Kandidaten werden kurz vorgestellt und zukünftige Entwicklungen und Probleme erörtert.
