Non-HIV AIDS, Idiopathic CD4+ T-lymphocytopenia

Jun 20, 2007

What is your take on "research conducted Tulane University Medical Center that suggests Non-HIV AIDS is associated with a retroviral particle called Human Intracisternal A-Type Particle-Type II, or HIAP-II"?

Response from Dr. Frascino


Sorry, I'm not aware of this research nor have I ever heard of HIAP-II. Consequently I cannot comment. I, for one, have not seen this information validated in peer-reviewed scientific journals. I'll keep a lookout and let you know if this story evolves. Personally, I tend to doubt it.

Dr. Bob

Please help Me.
Negative test, WOO HOO!
