Whole Body Hypertermia & AIDS
Dec 4, 1997

I am trying to participate in a group that will start treating AIDS patients for miltidrug-resistance HIV with whole Body Hyperthemia in Mexico city. I would like to know your point of view about the treatment of HIV patients with this procedure, what are the benefits (if any) and complications?

Thank you,

Juan

Response from Dr. Gallant

I have been quite unimpressed by the data I've seen on hyperthermia as a treatment for HIV disease. Nor have I been convinced by the theoretical rationale for such a treatment.

If this is a controlled clinical trial designed to study hyperthermia, that may be justifiable. But charging people (or their insurance companies) for this "treatment" is unethical. JG
