RIGHT NOW IN AMERICA'S LARGEST CITIES.... MORE THAN THREE QUARTERS OF YOUNG GAY AND BISEXUAL MEN INFECTED WITH H-I-V, DON'T KNOW THEY HAVE IT.

WITHOUT BEING ABLE TO PROLIFERATE, MAKERS OF THE DRUG SAY, THE VIRUS DIES.

(SOT- DAVID REDDY, Ph.D./HIV Franchise Leader, Roche)

"and for those patients who have limited treatment options it does bring a new hope"
HOWEVER SOME EXPERTS SAY THIS KIND OF HOPE MAY BE PART OF THE REASON WHY PEOPLE AREN'T GETTING TESTED IN THE FIRST PLACE.

(SOT-Dr. Tom Coates/UCSF AIDS Expert)

"so the paradox is introducing medications causes people to worry less about this disease and hence it spreads more rapidly."
