proteins block hiv
Jan 25, 2008
Hi. I read somewhere that they discovered 220 proteins in the body some of which might block HIV. Does this sound promising in the next 5 years as a long term treatment? What is the average HIVer living with on meds these days on the current meds? Does it look like future meds will be less toxic?
Response from Dr. Conway
Many new approaches are being looked at (including using the body's own proteins to help fight off HIV). New treatments using these strategies are problay 10 or more years away. The average life span of someone who responds to HIV meds is now estimated at 35 years or more. It is probably even longer given the less toxic and more effective drugs that are now available for use. So the future is bright...
