is it true doctor?
Apr 26, 2012

hello doctor, please see the link precisely this paper in lancet says: The remaining life expectancy for a 20-year-old HIV patient on cART increased from 36.1 years in 1996-1999 to 49.4 years in 2003-2005, Robert Hogg, Ph.D., of the British Columbia Center for Excellence in HIV/AIDS here, and colleagues reported in the July 26 issue of The Lancet. is it true? are we going to live healthy and a normal life expectancy? regards.

Response from Dr. Young

Back at ya, hello!

Yes, I think that this is a well conducted study from a very reputable group. This study corroborates what we have been saying on these pages for some time: that properly diagnosed (and hopefully not too late), with access to appropriate medications, that life expectancy for those living with HIV can be normal.


First line therapy....... please help
