Re: treatment for testicular atrophy - DD
Feb 10, 2001

Dear Dr. Dieterich, Would taking Amprenavir improve testicular atrophy in HIV positive men since Amprenavir has been shown to reduce levels of HIV-1 in semen? http://www.medscape.com/reuters/prof/2000/06/06.22/20000622clin014.html Thanks

Response from Dr. Dieterich

It depends on why the testicles are atrophic. If it is because of using anabolics or testosterone, of course it will not matter. However I would be surprised if any medication had more effect than any other on testicular atrophy. DTD
