Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for posting.
I'm encouraged about the possibilities of HIV cure- though much, much more research (and commitment, and time) will be needed.
1) yes, absolutely (search TheBody.com for more) 2) It won't be coming days, but likely years before we will know more about how such treatments will work in people who have chronic HIV infection.
I Thank You!
