re:rheumatoid arthritis and HIV
Feb 14, 2012

hi doc, thanks for responding. here is the link for the DMARD gold drug acting on HIV: i hope this time i can get a solution for my previous question regarding drug interaction, possible benefit in suppressing HIV in my body with gold (i am not on ART)and any possible danger for my future HAART. regards.

Response from Dr. Henry

That is an animal study with some suggestive but not convincing findings-worth pursuing but likely a long road to finish a clinical trial in humans that would show efficacy and safety. I dont see a major concern about drug interactions with auronofin and many of the key HIV drugs. KH

Atripla and acid lactic
Medications for other illness with HIV infection.
