ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the impact of highly active anti-retroviral therapy (HAART) on HIV patients with cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinitis in the U.S. This alternative treatment reduced the prevalence of the CMV disease and decreased mortality rate of patients suffering from an HIV complication. Its effectiveness and safety had been evaluated in association with a standard treatment therapy for the disease.
