The acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) epidemic shows no sign of waning. Recent calculations suggest that several hundred thousand asymptomatic people may have been infected with the putative AIDS agent, HTLV-III/LAV. This review includes an analysis of immunologic data, means of preventing transmission of the syndrome, and a discussion of the psychosocial and ethical impact of the disorder. Also summarized are epidemiologic and clinical parameters of AIDS in the US.
