DOC, JUST WANTED TO CLARIFY ONE THING.....IM REAL CURIOUS TO KNOW, OR DIFFERENTIATE, THE PERCENTAGES BETWEEN DRUG INDUCED DISEASES IN AIDS VS. DIRECTLY RELATED DISEASE DUE TO AIDS. FOR INSTANCE SOMEWHERE IT HAS BEEN STATED THAT 30% OF HIV INFECTED PEOPLE DEVELOP PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY, BUT IT HAS ALSO BEEN STATED THAT P.N. CAN BE INDUCED BY DRUGS TAKEN TO ALLEVIATE HIV. SAME GOES WITH DRY MOUTH FOR INSTANCE. SO WHEN THEY SAY 30% DOES THIS INCLUDE THE DRUG INDUCED DISEASE AS WELL ? WHAT WOULD BE THE REAL PERCENT IF NO DRUG INDUCED DATA WERE TABULATED? THANKS AGAIN, PB.

Not sure I can answer that question. Sorry. MH
