Although it is known that treatment for HIV has some side effects, a new study shows the drugs can cause toxic and adverse reactions. Swiss researchers studied 1,160 people treated for HIV infection. The patients were taking powerful antiretroviral treatments, including protease inhibitors and transcriptase inhibitors, two common HIV drugs.
