Started the study drug today
« on: October 18, 2006, 06:17:56 PM »
Well, I took my first dose of GS-9137 today. I started in the protocol 16 weeks ago, but I was randomized to the non-drug arm of the study. At 16 weeks the non-drug arm receives the study drug, so today I started.

Keep your fingers crossed.

I also found out today that my cd4% is at 5.5, and has been slowly climbing over the past few months. Again, fingers crossed that is keeps going up, and up...

Here's hoping that GS-9137 kicks your CD4% into exponents.
