Part 2: Ulcerative Colitis & HIV and use of immunosuppresants
Aug 22, 2012

Thank you so much for coming back to me Dr Henry. Greatly appreciated.

However, you say mostly your patients 'do ok' whilst on Azathioprince. What do you mean by this? Does it mean that CD4's won't be effected at all? Or have your patients seen decreases in % and CD4 counts?

Many thanks again


Response from Dr. Henry

There generally has been a mild/modest effect on CD4 counts that werent clinically significant. KH

Help with Isentress/Turvada side effects?
