Hypertension - Noncompliance is a major factor in the increasing number of deaths related to cardiovascular disease. According to a recent study by a team of researchers from the University of Lausanne in Switzerland, "as many as half of 'failures' of treatment to bring elevated blood pressure down to normal levels may be due to unrecognized lapses by patients in taking antihypertensive drugs as prescribed."
HIV/AIDS Treatments - Recent breakthroughs in the effectiveness of AID treatments include HAART (highly active antiviral therapy), which provide the possibility of significantly controlling the effects of AIDS. Unfortunately, non-adherence is known to be the Achilles' heel of complex AIDS treatments.
