Has anyone been diagnosed with HIV-2?
      #1386 - 04/02/00 07:46 PM

HIV TYPE 2: Has anyone here been diagnosed with HIV-2 (type 2)?
Currently in the US we only test for HIV-1. HIV-2 is a weaker
strain common in Africa but not the U.S. Now that I have a friend
in the U.S. with this, we are having a difficult time finding any
information on any research studies/treatment for this type of
HIV. Also, we have no idea how he contracted this since he has
not connection to W. Africa or anyone from there, and was never a
IV drug user, and definately never promiscuous. If you know
anything, please email me. Especially if you are infected with
this, it would be good to here from you.

Thank you
