Injury to tissue can lead to secondary bacterial infection. Fungi causing deep infection enter the body through inhalation or through open wounds. Deep infections are most common in association with other diseases or as opportunistic infections in immunosuppressed ­individuals. Some fungi are part of the normal body flora and become pathogenic when antibiotics kill bacteria that normally compete for nutrients and preclude fungal growth. For example, yeasts in the vagina may undergo rapid proliferation when antibiotics kill vaginal bacteria.

The combination involves inhibitors of reverse transcriptase (reverse transcriptase inhibitors) and of viral protease (protease inhibitors). Inhibitors of the initial viral entrance into the target cell (entrance inhibitors) and inhibitors of the viral integrase (integrase inhibitors) have undergone clinical trials and are being added to the combination. Drug therapy for AIDS is difficult because the AIDS retrovirus incorporates into the genetic material of the host and may never be removed by antiviral therapy.
