Taking Thymopeptide coated capsules

May 31, 2014

Hello Doctor, i went to the Dermatologist and he told me that i have HPV infection cuz he found genital warts on my penis and he removed them electrically and gave me thymopeptide coated capsules to improve the ability of my immune system ,so my question if this kind of medicine would affect the result of the HIV antibody test if done while i am taking it ....another thing if u dont mind, taking thymopeptide capsules for 6 months will pretty help my immune system to clear it out from my body? thanks a lot

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

I'm not aware of, nor could research any data that suggests that "thymopeptide" has any benefit.

That said, there should be no effect on HIV test results either.
