THANK YOU! + 2 QUICK QUESTION
Apr 19, 2009
Hello Dr. Bob,
Thank you very much for answering my questions re the effects of mild CVID or IgA on the progression from HIV to AIDS.
You stated that, even with a 'normal, healthy' person, "There is no 'least' and 'longest' times. It's very variable from person to person."
Why WOULD one healthy person progress faster from HIV to AIDS than another person? Are there any answers to this yet?
Are there ANY medical conditions that would make the progression faster?
Thanks in advance, Joy
Response from Dr. Frascino
Briefly HIV disease progression depends on many factors, both viral (viral strain, viral load, viral fitness) and host (immune integrity, age, genetics, concurrent infections, etc.).
