What next out of the Sweetie jar? Yum.
« on: July 01, 2010, 03:07:09 PM »
OK, this is theoretical (because if I don't say this Ann will be posting replies telling me I'm jumping the gun! :-*).

Hypothetically, if I'm doing ok on Atripla - VL UD and no side effects what could I take next to help my CD4s assuming I don't achieve immunological success on Atripla.

What should I be on next? (I'm in the UK BTW)

- Should it be PI based?
- What about Truvada and Isentress?
- What are the second regime options?
- Would I be going through combos too quickly and reducing what's available later on?

Would appreciate your thoughts guys.

There's a current clinical trial looking at adding IL-7 as a possible way to increase T cell response:

http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00839436?term=il-7+hiv+cd4&rank=3

Selzentry has shown to possibly have an effect:

But you're jumping the gun, just relax. Living a clean stress free life probably goes a long way in helping the immune response.

I can do clean, but stress free? There's a challenge!

PI based combo

Interleukin is horrid to take and the benefit time limited and reversible

Clean living, yes, there's an option.....

Clean living is highly overrated. I prefer dirty living.
