Drug Treatment Protocol for HIV Infected Patients Using State Feedback Integral Control Technique Jo, Nam-Hoon;
In this paper, a drug treatment protocol is proposed for an HIV infection model that explicitly includes the concentration of healthy T cells, infected T cells, and HIV. Since real parameters of HIV infection model differ from patient to patient, most drug treatment protocols are not able to achieve the treatment goal in the presence of modelling errors. Recently, based on the nonlinear robust control theory, a robust treatment protocol has been proposed that deals with parameter uncertainties. Although the developed scheme is inherently complex, it cannot be applied to the case where all parameters are unknown. In this paper, we propose a new drug treatment protocol that is much simpler than the previous one but can achieve the treatment goal even when all model parameters are unknown. The simulation results verify that the substantial improvement in the performance can be achieved by the proposed scheme.
