Abstract

The acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) epidemic shows no sign of waning. Recent calculations suggest that several hundred thousand asymptomatic people may have been infected with the putative AIDS agent, HTLV-III/LAV. This review includes an analysis of immunologic data, means of preventing transmission of the syndrome, and a discussion of the psychosocial and ethical impact of the disorder. Also summarized are epidemiologic and clinical parameters of AIDS in the US.
