Question:
What is the latest information about AIDS or HIV?



Replies:
Bobbi, Scientists are excited about a new treatment. This treatment is a drug which increases the number of helper t-cells which have the role of "activating" your immune system. The side effects are a detriment. An extended case of flu like systems has seemed to plague the early users of the new drug.

Thanks for your interest.
