A SCARED VICTIM
Nov 29, 1999

WHAT LEVEL OF THE VIRAL LOAD WILL CAUSE DEATH.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

There is no level at which one can say the virus level has caused death. Higher levels are associated with more rapid progression of disease (months to years). But HIV disease is very complicated and progression is the result of the strain of virus transmitted, the immune system's ability to contain replication, and whether treatment is initiated or not.
