Response from Dr. Frascino
The stem-cell therapies for HIV have not been proven to be effective yet. However, stem-cell research has been severely hampered by Dubya and his rightwing religious zealots. That hopefully will change once Obama dislodges the Rodeo Clown from the White House and we can return to the world of science and common sense. As for "nanotechnology" injections, I have no idea what you are referring to. Check the archives of this forum for my comments about finding a cure for HIV/AIDS. Also, stay tuned to this site and we'll keep you updated on promising new therapies and our search for the Holy Grail cure!
I do hope you'll soon disclose your status to some trusted close friends and family. We all need support when dealing with this illness.
