Would like to know if anyone has tried T-20, and what kind of results and side effects have you experienced. Any information would be appreciated as I will problably be going on it soon as part of salvage therapy.

My husband was in one of the clinical trials. T-20 was part of the combination they put him on. It was salvage therapy for him also. The biggest problem he encountered was a lot of swelling at the injection sites. He went off T20 after the 48 week trial because of the swelling, but credits T20 with jump starting his recovery. His viral load went to undetectable in a matter of weeks. At the time his CD4's were 7 and his viral load was greater than 750,000 and he had just spent a month in the hospital. He's been off T20 for 2 years now. He maintains a CD4 greater than 200 and an undetectable viral load.
