Fast progressor vs slow progressor
May 4, 2006
What is the time difference in progression between a fast progressor vs a slow progressor with meds?
Response from Dr. Horwath
The term slow progressor is usually used to refer to people with HIV infection who are not in treatment, but do not progress to AIDS during the usual time of progression (10 years on average). The use of these terms is relative and cannot be stated as a precise time difference.
