AIDS

Good news on the AIDS research front with antiretroviral treatment.

(Read somewhere that someone with AIDS had a much reduced risk of developing m.s. than someone who didn’t have AIDS.)

I wonder if the ART treatment for AIDS could be tried on someone with m.s. and see if it had a beneficial effect.

Like this?

Thanks Whammel - those reports were from 4/5 years ago - I wonder if any more research has been done to show if someone with m.s. could be helped by taking the drugs prescribed to people with AIDS?

From memory, I don’t think the results with Shona were replicated, but clearly one to keep our eyes on.

I remember reading somewhere that if they got a cure for AIDS it would help in the treatment of MS
