The primacy of the Italian sarà the object of a large space in the course of the fifth edition of I. C. A. R., the Italian Conference on AIDS and Retroviruses, sponsored by SIMIT, Italian Society of Infectious and Tropical Diseases, held in Turin, italy.

età average of subjects infected is is raised, going from 20-30 years in the year 2000, 30-40 years current. Given that the expert underlines it with a certain importance, positive becauseé “it would seem that our patients are getting older of course, with all the ailments and diseases related to età”.
in Short, a large part to antiretroviral therapy, by inhibiting the multiplication of the HIV virus, allowing the immune system to perform better their task. Thereò has direct consequences mainly on the qualityà of the life of the patient, without neglecting economic aspects.

In the best conditions, therapeutic exercise, instead, life expectancy is close to that of the rest of the population not affected by the virus.
