thank you so much keith

Response from Dr. Henry

I wouldn't hold my breath for nano technology if your HIV doc recommends (and you concur) that treatment is in order. Many of the treatments available in resource rich countries are simple and well tolerated (often 1-3 pills once daily)for most patients. KH
