Abstract ( 486 )
Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) was transmitted into China in 1985. Three different HIV epidemics have occurred: low-level, concentrated and now generalized epidemics in China. So far, HIV/AIDS has been reported in all 31 provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities) in the mainland and there exist three HIV transmission routes (via blood/blood products, sex and mother-to-child transmission). HIV epidemic is now at the risk of critical phrase spreading from high risk population to general population. Currently, the largest group of HIV infection is injecting drug users, with a proportion of 45% in cumulative reported cases in China. Sexually transmitted HIV infections are gradually increasing in recent years, mainly caused by extra-marital unprotected homosexual and heterosexual behaviors, partly by marital sex intercourse. Mother-to-child transmission has been found in high prevalence areas. HIV transmission route due to blood donation has been successfully controlled. The Chin...更多ese government has attached great importance to the control of HIV/AIDS cpidemic, however, in order to get rid of HIV/AIDS will be a very arduous and long way to go.

Abstract ( 410 )
Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is the pathogen of AIDS. Research on HIV etiology is the basis of understanding HIV pathogenesis, searching for the targets of antiretroviral therapy, designing of effective HIV vaccine and diagnostic methods. Since HIV was isolated in 1983, the biology study has made great progress. The shape, structure and function of each ingredient of the viral particle have been clarified. The replication and life cycle of the virus have been understood, the control and regulation of virus replication have been revealed. The dynamic and variation of the virus have been comprehended. On the basis of the these knowledge, the pathogenesis of HIV and the interaction between HIV and host cell have been bright to light. However, HIV antiretroviral therapy and specific immune prevention are still great problems, the advanced research on HIV biology and pathogenesis is urgently needed for revealing molecular mechanism of HIV replication, regulation and pathogenesis, clar ifying the interaction between HIV and host cell and development of new antiretroviral agents and vaccine.

Abstract ( 379 )
HIV/AIDS laboratory testing is very important in the prevention and the treatment of AIDS. HIV/AIDS laboratory network and its quality assurance system has been built and will be more and more perfect in China. 3 707 screening laboratories and 53 confirming laboratories in the whole country had been authorized by the end of year 2004; proficiency testing in serology and immunology has been developed and in virology will start this year. Routine testing technology, which is being used in the laboratory network, includes HIV antibody testing, nucleic acid testing and CD4+ T cells counting. The new technologies and the new strategies in study and evaluation include the alternative strategy of confirming testing, antigen testing, BED-EIA assay, antibody testing and nucleic acid testing with dry blood paper, pooling RT-PCR, and etc..

Abstract ( 405 )
The epidemic of HIV/AIDS has killed more than 20 million people globally. Even there is no medicine can heal HIV/AIDS, with the coming out and widely use of Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy, AIDS has changed to a treatable chronic infectious disease. Chinese government is paying great attention to HIV/AIDS issue and improving medical services to people living with HIV/AIDS step by step. Based on the description of general information about AIDS treatment, following topics, such as history review, current situation, challenges and future plan, regarding China Free ARV Program were emphasized with the combination of characters of AIDS treatment.

Abstract ( 1200 )
Although the HAART(Highly Active Antiretrovirus Therapy) can not completely cure HIV/AIDS, it makes the fatal disease into the chronic and controllable disease with reducing mortality and morbility throughout the world. TCM has been used in the research of HIV/AIDS and treating HIV/AIDS for many years.Many Chinese herbs have some effect on inhibiting HIV thought the basic research. TCM can enhance immune function, improve symptoms-signs, not reduce viral loading according with the Clinic research. In a word, TCM have some advantages, such as improving the clinical symptoms, enhancing immune function,good adherence,low cost and so on.

Abstract ( 421 )
Metallurgy analysis of Columbia debris materials was proceeded in order to study the cause of Columbia Tragedy. It was found that major thermal events occurred in the left wing leading edge near RCC panels 8 and 9 during reentry of space shuttle. A breach occurred at left hand (LH) airframe components reinforced carbon carbon (RCC) panel 8. The high-temperature plasma entered through the breach and melted the supporting materials such as Al alloy and Fe,Ni base alloy, which result in the space shuttle Columbia explosion. It is suggested that new materials development should be a limited aim for the present. The system of new materials and its processing should be built to meet the need of economy in our country. The common key materials, which used in aviation, space shuttle, nuclear-powered plant, and equipment manufacture etc, should be strengthened those materials processing. The visualization casting technology was presented.

Abstract ( 409 )
A puzzle of how to treat wastewater with polyacrylamide(PAM) is presented while a new technology ,tertiary recovery processes with the aid of polymer, is widely used. The feature of wastewater with PAM is highly viscous, plentiful of oil and stable for emulsified oil. Therefore, it's hard for conventional processes and equipments to treat wastewater with PAM and make it reach the national standard for reuse water. The study on microorganism in aerobic sludge granules domesticated by synthetic wastewater with PAM will be helpful for the development of bio-treatment technology which is used in oil wastewater with PAM. In this paper, the inoculated aerobic sludge granules could be well adapted to the synthetic oil wastewater with PAM. The aerobic sludge granules could degrade PAM in wastewater from 350 mg/Lto150 mg/L when HRT was 144 h. The removal ratio of PAM reached 57% .The study on superior microorganism in aerobic sludge granules showed that the main microorganism was pseudomonas al caligenes, which played a very important role in degradation of PAM in synthetic oil wastewater

Abstract ( 567 )
From a new angle of language, we studied the distributions and correlativity of the social and economical indexes on the Web. Based on the computation to the model of statistics, we found out that these indexes obey the power law approximatively on different scales, they are the reflections of the distributions and evolving characters of the social and economical phenomena on the Web. We pointed out that languages have been the nature boundaries of social and economical on the Web, and so, web language communities and web language markets have been shaped. Their evolutive status and size are restricted strongly by the real language economical level correspond to languages. At the same time, we have estimated the upper web language markets' size at present, and discovered that these markets' size obeys the power law, too.
