    Fighting HIV with Protease Inhibitors
    HIV relies on the host cell it injects itself into to continue the cycle. By implicating road blocks in this process through protease inhibitors, there is a possibility of halting the replication and spread of the HIV virus. 7 Steps of the HIV Life Cycle: The first step of the HIV cycle is binding, when the virus first attaches to...
