Within this framework we will briefly review the virology of HIV and identify the major targets for antiretroviral therapy. The discussion will then turn to a review of the basic pharmacology of the various classes of antiretroviral drugs with emphasis on the newer drugs and drug combinations. We will then discuss the newest DHHS guidelines (2014) regarding recommendations for when to initiate treatment, which drug combinations are advised, when and what to monitor as well as guidelines for both pre- and post-exposure treatments. Finally, we will discuss the complications issues surrounding the development of a cure for this disease.
