I understand that the new PI Tipranavir has been associated with some rather nasty side effects,mostly very loose stools and naussia. Are the reports over estimating the degree to which the side effects occur? Do you think we will be able to see this drug introduced with out the high level of side effects I mentioned earlier?

Response from Dr. Boyle

Tough to say. We'll have to wait for more data, but this drug will probably be used only in deep salvage and we will have to become adept at managing Tipranavir side effects in that population, as we have done before with other drugs.
