Knocking out other viruses
Jan 22, 2003

Is there any literature looking at use of antivirals for chronic herpes suppression as it relates to survival and hiv progression??

Response from Dr. Young

I'm not aware of any such literature.

There is good data, however that notes that HIV viral loads can go up TRANSIENTLY during herpes flairs. The relationship that this has towards survival is not proven, but I operate under the assumption that the effect is minor, if any. -BY
