Re: Full-blown aids to hiv+

My understanding is that the reason the AMA still recognizes those who rebound to above 200T-cells as Aids and no converting back to HIV+ is because you have a low established baseline. Studies have shown that despite your rise in numbers, if your treatment were to fail, your numbers would decrease quite rapidly back to their lows. So if you started treatment at say 400 and treatment failed, this is probably where you would quickly retreat back to. You would still have lots of time to deteriorate or rebuild your numbers. If your numbers were 50 when you started treatment and your treatment failed, you would fall back into that range quickly, therefore having less time to find a new therapy.

Not to worry in your case though, immune therapies are coming brother and if you just hang in there and keep those numbers on the rise, stay on your meds and don't skip does, watch for any resistance trends, then your prognosis is well. I read a report about IL-2 and other T-cell boosting therapies to hit the mainstream soon. The t-cells created by IL-2 live three times as long as regular T-cells!

Personally, I think ANYONE living with HIV today, who is at this moment healthy is going to damn near live a full life-span given what I've read. There is about to be a wave of new meds, soon,..................So keep your chin up, live life, stay healthy and rest assured science is coming to the rescue for us all!
