long term use
Jan 5, 2004

what are the chaces that an adherent person who is on a potent enough combo that the virus is sensetive to, can maintain good lab results on the same combo indefinately?

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your question.

While indefinitely is a very long time, I do believe that many patients can stay on effective therapy for years. How long? What I can say is that I've got patients who remain on effective and well tolerated HIV combinations since 1995-1996-- the beginning of the HAART era. BY

HIV-2: any tried and true HAART regimens?
7 weeks after starting HAART - other blood work?
