Early Symptoms of STD/AIDS and Treatment

Early symptoms of HIV may feel like (and may even be mistaken for) a long-lasting flu. These flu-like symptoms may occur 4-8 weeks after infection and are known as HIV seroconversion or an acute HIV infection. During the initial period of infection, the body's immune system fights the HIV virus and as a result rids itself of flu-like symptoms. A person's ability to spread HIV is highest during this stage due to the high amount of the virus in the blood. As the HIV virus progresses over the course of months or years, the body's immune system continues to deteriorate and weaken, ultimately leading to AIDS. The immune system is compromised by this point and is unable to protect the body from HIV-related symptoms or new infections or illnesses. A therapeutic HIV vaccine is a vaccine that’s designed to improve the body’s immune response to HIV in a person who already has HIV. Currently, no therapeutic HIV vaccines have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), but research is under way. Researchers are exploring therapeutic HIV vaccines to slow down the progression of HIV infection, to eliminate the need for antiretroviral therapy (ART) while still keeping undetectable levels of HIV, and as part of a larger strategy to eliminate all HIV from the body.
