Abstract AIDS: NAC (N-acetylcysteine) is a compound essential for the synthesis of glutathione, a cellular antioxidant. Administration of NAC is useful in prolonging survival, and people with HIV should avoid behaviors such as chronic use of alcohol or acetaminophen (Tylenol) that deplete glutathione. Glutathione is a key compound for the smooth functioning of all cells, and is composed of three amino acids. Research is presented on one study.
