colds
Jun 7, 2001

do hiv+'s in early disease (infected for about 1 year) experience more common colds on average than the hiv - community?

Response from Dr. Feinberg

One large study showed that HIV+ people experience more upper respiratory disease tahn their HIV- counterparts. "Upper respiratory" includes colds, sore throats, bronchitis, etc and I do not believe that these data were characterized in a more detailed way.
