Re: "One Doctor's Approach for Preventing Opportunistic Infections,"
an inaccuracy occurred in an attempt to summarize Dr. Bernard Bihari's treatment
plan (see the Overview section
in that article). Dr. Bihari wants our readers to know that he does not think
people should start two protease inhibitors at the same time. In fact, Dr. Bihari
has not yet prescribed protease inhibitors to his patients. He is watching
the new studies on combination therapy and is hopeful that it will be
possible to avoid resistance and produce a "slow cure" for AIDS
perhaps by starting two protease inhibitors simultaneously. Until the trials
show safety and efficacy, this is not safe for people to try.
The Women Alive editorial team takes full responsibility for these mistakes
and apologizes to Dr. Bihari and our readers.
