hi they did a test 4 month ago they did a test to see, genotpic I was resistance all hiv drug, On september 22 I have start taking a new drug call Tipranavir 500mg and Ritonavir twice a day, T-cell 68 on 22 of septemeber Now 240 T-cell..Viral load was 248,400, Now 3000 on Octocber 20,Should I take Atazanavir to thank very much for your time have a good day

Response from Dr. Pierone

There is really not evidence to suggest that atazanavir would add much to tipranavir if you had resistance to all the HIV medications. Also It might make more sense to add T20 (Fuzeon) to the regimen if you are not already on it.

hiv-2 clinical trials? any hope?
How long to go ? Again !
