Earlier HIV/AIDS Treatment Recommended in New Guidelines: Expert Summarizes

An Interview With David Wohl, M.D.

    "I think what we're saying in these guidelines is, basically: Should HIV be an infection that we treat from the very beginning, like we treat other infections?"
    "If I had HIV infection, I would want to start therapy _early_. I'd want to start therapy soon after I was diagnosed."
    "About 25 to 28 percent of people with HIV in the U.S. don't know that they're infected. There are estimates that those people may be responsible for half of all HIV transmissions."
