Do we have hope?
Aug 6, 2003

Dr. Bob,

Do we have hope? Are treatments today becoming more potent, less problematic, and most of all less toxic? Does hiv theraphy work or is it just alot of HUBBUB!


Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi Steven,

Do we have hope? Yes, of course, we always have hope. Are HIV treatments today becoming more potent, less problematic, and less toxic? Well, that's a bit controversial, but overall, yes. However, we still have a long way to go, as far as decreasing drug-related side effects and toxicities. Does HIV therapy work? Yes. Just take a look at the very dramatic decrease in HIV/AIDS deaths since potent anti-HIV therapy (HAART) came into widespread use in mid-1996. But, of course, we still have yet to cure anyone. So hope or hype aside, we are making progress, but still have a long and challenging road ahead of us. Stay tuned to this site for the latest developments in therapy.

Stay hopeful.

Dr. Bob
