Are you an elite controller or a long term non-progressor with delta 32?
| Response from Dr. Frascino
Am I an elite controller? Nope.
Am I a long-term non-progressor? Nope.
Am I delta 32 homozygous? Nope.
I'm merely a virally enhanced guy who has cohabitated with the virus since January 1991 by staying informed, working closely with HIV specialists, swallowing fistfuls of antiretrovirals, maintaining a positive attitude about being positive and being fortunate enough to have health insurance. (And being an HIV specialist physician as well as having an HIV specialist physician as a partner (and now fiancé) for 15 years probably has something to do with it as well.) I'm the first to admit I'm one lucky guy!
