Nov 17, 2001

Dear Dr. I started a holiday on 5/23.The vl started to rise as I expected but declined at last reading.I know that we never form decisions from 1 set of labs,but do you have an opinion?

Data: 5/14/01 935cd4 36 vl<<50 5/20 holiday 6/20 801 35 <50 7/13 796 34 259 8/17 855 35 5790 9/26 844 31 2990

I would have expected the vl to continue to rise.Highest ever vl 40,000.Thank you foryour help.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

You are an interesting experiment. There may be some endogenous control of HIV replication going on. However, I am concerned about the CD4 percentage going down. MH
