A different type of Question......
Dec 22, 2000
It has long been known that HIV does not always travel alone. I mean that people infected with HIV tend to have other STD's such as clap, herpes, warts, gon.,hep, etc. Co-factors are known to increase the risk of infection. With this being said, what about being infected with HIV and CMV from the same exposure, new infections. Would co-infection of these two viruses, from the same encounter, confuse the immune system? Would the body address one, and let the other one come in the back door, so to speak? Could being infected with both at the same time delay conversion, like when one is infected with Hep and HIV at the same time? Thank you much.......

Probably not. No data to answer directly.
