How Nanotechnology Could Help Eradicate HIV From the Body

How Nanotechnology Could Help Eradicate HIV From the Body

When we pop a pill, the cargo inside has to withstand a lot before it reaches its target region. For example, when you take an aspirin because you have a headache, that aspirin has a lot to deal with before easing your pain. It goes through the stomach, the gastrointestinal tract, your liver and into your blood. Along the way, the drug is going to lose maximum effectiveness of the dose by the time it reaches its target. This is an especially important point for HIV medication. Modern HIV medication known as highly active antiretroviral therapy, or HAART, is making long, healthy lives possible for people who have HIV. But it falls short in completely eradicating the virus, which hides in the reservoirs such as the brain,
