Abstract:
During the past 15 years, mathematical models, combined with experimental data, have made significant contributions to our understanding of HIV and other virus infections, such as hepatitis C virus (HCV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), and influenza. There are still a lot of questions remaining unanswered. In this talk, I will discuss my recent work in modeling HIV/HCV infection and drug treatment. I will show how mathematical models can explain low-level HIV persistence in infected individuals despite apparently potent combination therapy (commonly known as the “cocktail therapy”) for many years. I will also explain why drug resistant virus appears so rapidly in HCV patients treated with a new drug. These results have significant implications for clinical practice.
