We believe that Americans who have no family members suffering from HIV or AIDS cannot realize the enormity of problems such patients are suffering today.
We read that in Africa where AIDS is so rampant, sufferers are lying out in the streets waiting to die. And we read that more new cases are developing than there are sufferers dying.
A new drug has been found by researchers right here in North Carolina. The new drug is called Fuzeon, and the Food and Drug Administration gave quick approval to the manufacture of this drug. We read that it probably will be on the market in a matter of weeks. It is believed to be a drug that possibly might help control the spread of this disease.
