hep d
Dec 1, 2003

is there really such a thing as hep d, and does it really slow progression of hiv?

Response from Dr. Dieterich

Actually you are close. Delta hepatitis or hepatitis D is a provirus that only infects those that are already infected with hepatitis B Hepatitis G or more accurately GB virus C actually does seem to slow the advance of HIV. It is a relative of hepatitis C and so far it does seem to to help HIV, however I would not recommend going out to try to get it! You might get something else! Stay safe!DTD
