Response from Dr. Henry

I do believe that many if not most patients who received good treatment for HIV can live 20 years or more (need to avoid other medical problems, accidents et cetera). Most HIV drugs regimen provide some protection for the brain. Therapeutic vaccines are interesting but so far have not been proven to be of clinical benefit. New vaccines are in development that promise to be more effective but only time and studies will tell for sure. KH

sexual dysfunction, infection in testicles
