Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

It's been at least a couple of years since we first heard about Revivo-- several interesting reports on their website claiming improvments in CD4 counts from China and Thailand. Tantalizing, no doubt. I find it striking that there still have been no controlled clinical trials (particularly in Thailand, where the HIV research community is very well established and willing to explore "alternative" approaches).

Until I see well designed and independently-confirmed clinical trials, I'll view Revivo as just another $100/month snake oil that preys on the hopes of patients and the HIV community. I challenge to produce the data-- I'm sure it'd be easy to find reputable collaborators-- or is it simply easier to sell product to unsuspecting innocents? BY
