Crossing the blood-brain barrier
Aug 15, 2006

I currently take Sustiva and Truvada, with the understanding that Sustiva and the Emtriva in the Truvada cross the BBB. I need this ability of my regimine to penetrate my brain as I have PML. I've seen some improvement but should another drug that crosses the BBB be added, such as Kaletra or Rescriptor, to increease this pentration? Thabks!

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

Dr. Wohl recently answered a question very similar to yours.

Hope this helps. BY
