The box of VLSI (Very huge Scale Integration) is worried with the layout, creation, and use of hugely advanced built-in circuits. The examine accumulated right here comes from many disciplines, together with computing device structure, computer-aided layout, parallel algorithms, semiconductor expertise, and checking out. It extends to novel makes use of of the know-how and ideas initially constructed for built-in circuits, together with built-in sensor arrays, electronic images, hugely parallel desktops, microactuators, neural networks, and a number of special-purpose architectures and networks of special-purpose devices.Jonathan Allen is Professor within the division of electric Engineering and desktop technology and Director of the examine Laboratory of Electronics at MIT. F. Thomson Leighton is affiliate Professor within the division of arithmetic and a member of the Laboratory for laptop technology at MIT.

Example text

Is burdensome and costly, which puts it out of reach of certain patients. In addition, some fraction of people who receive the best available care respond poorly. For such reasons, the search continues for ways to make therapy more universally effective and accessible. The ultimate goal, of course, is a cure. Investigators are unsure whether that aim is feasible. But many of us are cautiously optimistic that we are, at last, beginning to accumulate the weaponry needed to manage HIV as a bearable, chronic disorder, somewhat akin to diabetes or hypertension.

Their apparent good health continues because CD4 T cell levels remain high enough to preserve defensive responses to other pathogens. But over time, CD4 T cell concentrations gradually fall. When the level drops below 200 cells per cubic millimeter of blood, people are said to have AIDS. As levels dip under 100, the balance of power shifts away from the immune system. HIV levels skyrocket, and microbes that the immune system would normally control begin to proliferate extensively, giving rise to the potentially deadly opportunistic infections that are the hallmarks of AIDS (such as Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia and toxoplasmosis).

Doctors prescribe the combination of two nucleoside analogues and a protease inhibitor most often because this configuration was the first shown to work well. Other kinds of drug cocktails that incorporate newer drugs and may be more powerful or simpler to use are being evaluated as first-line options as well. Among those are two protease inhibitors or one protease inhibitor combined with a nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor; drugs in both those classes are more potent than zidovudine and other nucleoside analogues.
