Dear Dr. Eric,
which has been the longest spanlife record from vih disgnosis to death from aids to this date.
thank you for your answer.
Response from Dr. Daar
There are people who have been infected for more than 20 years who remain healthy. There are even people who were diagnosed with full blown AIDS who on therapy continue to have strong immune responses and lead normal healthy lives. I remain very optimistic that most patients who are taking care of their mental health, are avoiding drugs and working closely with an HIV specialists have a good chance to live for many decades.
