Aids virus can resist drugs

THE AIDS virus has the potential to outsmart virtually all the drug treatments now approved in the US to use against it, according to a new study. "There is a problem with drug resistance, and we can't fool ourselves," said Stanford University's Dr Robert Shafer, lead author of the new research published in Annals of Internal Medicine. His team found that patients treated with multiple drugs to tackle HIV, the virus which causes Aids, can develop full resistance to all available medications.
