Alternative Treatment
Jan 26, 2002

I'm newly infected in less than a year. My t-cell is still around 400, 23-24 and my viral load fluctuates in the 30,000. I recently found out about the alternative treatment of disenabling a certain protein on the t-cell to render HIV resistance and then inserting the t-cell back to those who are not non-progressor. This seems really promising from the initial trial, and I would like to find out how I could get involved with such trials. Please advise. Thank you.

Response from Dr. Young

I am not familiar with the specifics of the compound or clinical trial that you've described; I would suggest contacting your local university or the Adult AIDS Clinical Trials Group ( for information about clinical trials that you might be eligible for.

I would encourage your participation in appropriate trials; it is through the effort of many thousands of clinical trials participants that we now have effective antiretroviral therapies. Good luck, BY
