HIV in spinal cord
Jun 10, 2011

analyse of my spinal cord found 60 copies of HIV ;i have 0 virus in the blood and 1000 CD4,does i have to change treatment?(i take know reytaz and invirase)

Response from Dr. Henry

That is a low copy number overall-intervention that is appropriate depends on numerous factors what your clinical problem is and treatment history. If you are having central nervous system (CNS) problems likely related to HIV then often a switch to HIV drugs that penetrate well into the CNS are considered (high CPE index- see http://www.thebody.com/content/art54535.html?getPage=4) KH
