Follow up to 14th Oct Question
Oct 14, 2006
Hi Dr Young,
Thanks for all the hard work from you and your colleagues. In a recent question about seroconversion timing you said
"a recent large study of seroconverters suggests that a significant number of patients progress to CD4s less than 350 in less than 2 years from initial infection."
As this is exactly what has happened to me I would be grateful if I could read more about this study to help understand my own situation. Please could you direct me to where I could find it?
Thanks for everything
Response from Dr. Young
Thanks for your follow up question.
The data that I referred to is from the NIH's Acute Infection and Early Disease Research Program (AIEDRP), in a presentation by Dr. Susan Little (and Dr. Martin Markowitz) at this year's ICAAC meeting.
These data have not yet been fully reviewed nor published, but represent one of the most comprehesively studied group of recently infected patients in the world. Perhaps a query to Dr. Little at TheBody's forums may get a direct reply.
