the use of Tetracyclines
Apr 28, 2008
My medical practice is dedicated to ADHD. I often have HIV children referred to me with developmental delays and ADHD for treatment. Tetracyclines have been shown to have CNS anti-inflamatory properties. Would HIV encephalopahy benefit?
Response from Dr. Horwath
There is a literature on treating HIV-infected children with tetracyclines for bacterial infections. But I know of no data on using tetracycline to treat HIV encephalopathy.
