Dear Dr., I am the 19 months seroconverter, my name is Julio. Upon seroconverion my viral load is again undetectable and HIV-DNA also undetectable. Very symptomatic, bed-ridden, painful generalized lymphadenopathy, malaise, I paid for a lymph node biopsy which shows virus present in axillary nodes. I am trying to join a clinical trial but it requires a VL level that I have not reached (no insurance available) so I do not qualify for protocol. Do you know of studies for people like me. I am getting really desperate! Julio
Response from Dr. Holodniy
Look at www.actis.org. That might provide you with some trial info.
