hiv like virus china
Jul 31, 2012

Dear Doctor,

I have infected with hiv like virus. Kindly check this link. Is hiv medicine effective against this virus or any other medicine or complete cure is available? my cd 4 cell count is only 400. Is there medicine available to increase cd 4 cells count? Regards, Ravi

Response from Dr. McGowan


There is no data presented in the report to indicate that this is a particualr virus or that it is in anyway related to HIV. This could be a group of various viral infections. The reported changes in CD4 counts are also not consistent with HIV. Since the nature of this illness and its' cause are unknown there is no reason to believe that HIV meds would be effective.
