HIV life expectancy 'near normal' thanks to new drugs 研究发现新药物可使艾滋病毒携带者预期寿命“接近正常”

文字稿

在医疗期刊《柳叶刀》上发布的一项研究称,随着相关治疗水平的进步,现在接受最新艾滋病毒药物治疗的年轻人的预期寿命可接近正常人。研究还发现,与1996年首次接受抗艾滋病毒药物治疗的二十多岁患者相比,从2010年开始接受相关治疗的同龄患者们预计将多活十年。同时,世界卫生组织强调,在确诊携带艾滋病毒后,患者应及早接受抗艾滋病毒治疗。请听 Jane Dreaper 的报道。

The Bristol researchers used data about almost 90,000 people being treated for the virus from 18 studies in Europe and North America. Their projections suggest that a 20-year-old who began treatment in 2008 or afterwards may end up living until their mid-70s.

The latest improvements are due to newer drugs with fewer side effects. HIV treatment now often involves just one pill a day. The authors hope their findings will make it easier for people with HIV to get insurance and stay in employment.

A comment article alongside the research welcomed the results but pointed out early treatment was still limited in some poorer countries.
