so, how long?

Jun 10, 2002

Mark, please tell me:

For how long a person in his 20s and infected 3 months ago could live healthy (being adherent to current meds). Is it 15-20 years? Or an almost normal life span?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

The book is still be written. Many factors, including the development of other diseases, will impact HIV infection. There are clearly people now who have lived with the infection for 20 years. So as new medicines come on line it is conceivable that 20 years to a normal life time is possible.

Is this possible?
