Dr. Gottlieb, the supervising physician of the first five patients diagnosed with acquired immune deficiency syndrome in the early 1980's, discussed the status of AIDS research in 1991. To date, over 150,000 have died from infections associated with the virus, while over one million Americans have tested positive for the HIV virus and 40,000 to 50,000 Americans become newly infected each year. The U.S. government spent over three billion dollars on AIDS in 1991, and the figure is expected to grow. Dr. Gottlieb discussed the first cases of AIDS in 1981, the spread of the epidemic, and stated a five point program to deal with the AIDS crisis. close
