French medical doctor and clinical researcher known for his contributions to the knowledge and treatment of HIV and AIDS, starting with his initial designation of a human retrovirus as the cause of AIDS, and his ground-breaking use of triple combination therapy for the effective control of HIV in the patient.

A practising physician in the infectiology department of the Raymond-Poincaré hospital of Garches (directed by Prof. Christian Perronne, AP-HP), University lecturer Emeritus, he led the treatment program ICCARRE that proposed a dramatic reduction of weekly anti-HIV drug intake, down to 2-3 anti-viral pills a day taken 2 to 3 or 4 days a week, as opposed to the then recommended seven days a week. These reduced medical dosages were adequate, necessary and sufficient according to the results of his exploratory clinical research carried out since 2003.

He wrote the books "Un virus étrange venu d'ailleurs" (A strange virus of unknown origin), and "Pour en finir avec le sida" (Putting an end to AIDS).

Jacques Leibowitch died on 4 March 2020 at age 77 in Massy, France.
