Mathematical models have proven valuable in understanding the in vivo dynamics of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1), the virus that causes AIDS, and hepatitis C virus (HCV), the virus that causes hepatitis C infection. By comparing mathematical models with the data obtained from patients being treated with antiviral drugs, it has been possible to determine many quantitative features of these infections. The most dramatic finding has been that even though AIDS and hepatitis C are… CONTINUE READING
