Cure in Ten Years...

Oct 21, 2001

You failed to mentioned that the overwhelming majority of HIV+ individuals alive after 20 years are those who refuse to take anti-retroviral medication.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Not necessarily. Many chose to stay off. Others were convinced not to start by me and others when we saw based on CD4 and viral load trends, that is was probably unnecessary. Others stopped meds after some period of time again after trends over several years indicated that meds were probably not necessary.
