1. The control, but not complete eradication, of a disease, esp. an infection. In the management of HIV/AIDS, e.g., drug therapies are designed to suppress viral loads to very low levels. 2. The complete failure of the natural production of a secretion or excretion, as distinguished from retention, in which normal secretion occurs but the discharge is retained within the organ or body. 3.
