Varicella Zoster & HIV
Jan 24, 2004

I recently tested positive for HIV. About 15 years ago, I used to sell my plasma. My plasma commanded a premium because it contains a vericella zoster fighting agent or anti-body or something related to VZ. My question: Does this VZ agent in my plasma hinder, help or has no effect on my body's ability to deal with HIV? Thank you

Response from Dr. Young

As far as I know it has no effect. BY
