|Where do you see it
Feb 10, 2003
I have read that 2003 will be the busiest year ever for new drug launches, with at least five new products (T-20, FTC, Atazanavir and two reformulations) reaching the market in North America. With these new developements, and with future developments 5,10, or 20 yrs ahead, where do you see this disease going(no longer a death sentence, chronic like diabetes?) Will those who were infected in 2002 be around to benefit from the drugs of 2032? Your expert opinion would be greatly appreciated.
Response from Dr. Sullivan
The more drugs we have in our armamentarium the better we will be able to treat all individuals infected with HIV; we now have drug combinations capable of suppressing viral replication for years and our biggest problems are focused on adherence and long term side effects of these medications; the newly developed drugs will help us design combinations of drugs that can be easily taken and are less toxic over the long term; JLS.
Oh my god...
