9/11 among others.

Muslims are responsible for almost every war and conflict in the entire earth. Educate tourself or prepare to have your children tortured, your women raped and you slowly killed by TROP (I can supply about a hundred more factual links about the moon god religion started by that pedophile (may he burn in Hell between two pigs forever):

not all of them are ..
What to do when therapies are not working
Is there a role for modified directly observed therapy (MDOT)?

Some members of the MDOT team at Miriam Hospital's Immunology Center
In 1996, HIV therapies changed dramatically with the development of potent new HIV inhibitors; the era of highly active
antiretroviral therapy (HAART) had begun. From 1996 to 1998, we saw extraordinary advances in which patients, who previously had high viral loads and very low CD4 counts and had not responded to therapy, suddenly had tremendous clinical improvement on the combination of medications that made up HAART. Opportunistic infections that were previously untreatable resolved spontaneously due to immune reconstitution. Patients whose CD4 counts had been less than 50 were able to sustain CD4 count rises to well over 200 and eventually even up to the normal range of 500. Mortality rates due to AIDS fell by over 80 percent and AIDS case rates plummeted as individuals with HIV infection were able to sustain CD4 counts of over 200.

Unfortunately, many patients were not able to realize the benefits of HAART. Many of the patients we see at the Brown University/The Miriam Hospital Immunology Center suffer from severe depression, chronic substance abuse (including alcohol, heroin, and/or cocaine use) and, for many reasons, tremendous social instability including homelessness, family disintegration, and lack of support. Too often, all these conditions coincide.
