no surprise here. it is frustrating that these studies seem to be several steps behind of the patients. many hiv patients have brought this up to their doctors but as always, they often dismiss it as it will pass because there is no "written study" on it happening.....which is idiotic because here are your patients saying it is happening. this medical industry lacks innovation and free thinkers like the german doctor who cured (yes cured) the first hiv infected man....and wouldn't you know it, he's not even an HIV specialist.......the majority of doctors and specialists are just rank and file drones robosigning prescriptions for the drug companies. no real thinkers to think outside the box to cure, not treat, HIV and other diseases and disorders. DON'T TREAT US, CURE US!
