Q: A friend of mine told me he had HIV. Is there anything I need to do, like when he comes to my home, so that he doesn't get sick?
The version of the virus I acquired had already developed resistance to non-nucleosides. With many of the gene editing therapies in the pipeline targeting the CCR5 gene, I'm wondering if my variant requires that gene to infect a cell?
I read recently that, even though longevity is increasing for HIV+ people, people who begin treatment with a low CD4 count will probably live a shorter period of time. Do you feel this is true?
My viral load is 16,100. Is it possible that I can pass HIV to someone else, even if I only had sex with them three times?
