The Lowdown on Fuzeon

Seattle Treatment Education Project, the AIDS Clinical Trials Unit and POZ Seattle present a forum: "The Lowdown on Fuzeon." (Fuzeon is the new fusion inhibitor, formerly called T-20.)

How does this drug really work, anyway? What's the deal with side effects? Any Fuzeon support groups out there? Is there a "right" way to inject it? I heard there is a waiting list -- why? Is Fuzeon covered by any insurance?

Join a panel of HIV specialists and volunteers to address these important issues. We will also talk about some of the new anti-HIV drugs being developed.

When: Thursday, May 15th, 2003
Place: LGBT Center, 1115 E. Pike Street, here in Seattle
Time: 6:30 to 8:30 pm, parking off street

Light refreshments will be provided.
