meds effectiveness
Dec 6, 2006

I have heard and read that the current HIV meds: Susitiva, etc. are beginning to lose effectiveness. Are you seeing any eveidence of this??

Response from Dr. Young

No, on the contrary, all available data continues to point to the long-term effectiveness of HIV treatments in preventing AIDS complications and death.

Our most recent analysis of the CDC's HOPS study shows that the death rate among persons under care for HIV remains very, very low; among these rare cases, the causes of death are usually not AIDS-related. BY
