Listen to what happened to him recently: DON MACIVER/AIDS PATIENT: MY APPETITE RETURNED, I STARTED HAVING ENERGY, I WAS ABLE TO GO BACK TO THE GYM TO WORK OUT.
MacIver attributes his good health to a new AIDS drug combination: Indinavir, three-t-c and a-z-t. According to a new study in the latest addition of the New England Journal of Medicine, the treatment worked better than any drug combination at reducing the level of H-I-V in the blood. DR. ROY GULICK, NYU MEDICAL CENTER: THE PATIENTS THAT TOOK ALL THREE OF THE DRUGS TOGETHER IN MORE THAN 80 PERCENT OF THOSE PATIENTS, THEIR VIRUS WAS REDUCED TO UNDETECTABLE LEVELS AND THAT WAS SUSTAINED FOR AS LONG AS ONE YEAR.
Although Dr. Gulick says more study needs to be done on the effects of taking the drug combination over a long period of time, he says it may be a way of changing the face of AIDS from a deadly disease to a chronic condition. DR. ROY GULICK, NYU MEDICAL CENTER: OUR STUDY TOOK THE FIRST STEP WHICH IS TO SAY IT ACTUALLY REDUCED VIRUS TO UNDETECTABLE LEVELS AND IT'LL STAY DOWN THERE FOR A YEAR OR PERHAPS EVEN LONGER. THE NEXT COUPPLE OF STEPS ARE GOING TO ANSWER THOSE TYPES OF QUESTIONS: CAN YOU STOP SOME OF THE DRUGS AND HAVE THE GOOOD EFFECTS CONTINUE, OR PERHAPS TAKE PATIENTS OFF DRUGS COMPLETELY AND CONTROL THE VIRUS BUT WE SURE DON'T KNOW THE ANSWERS TO THAT YET. DON MACIVER, AIDS PATIENT: I FEEL WONDERFUL, MY LIFE IS BACK TO NORMAL, I CAN SWIM A MILE WITHOUT PROBLEMS I CAN RUN TWO AND HALF MILES WITHOUT PROBLEMS, I CAN LIFT WEIGHTS WITHOUT PROBLEMS. MY LIFE IS BACK TO WHERE IT WAS TEN YEARS AGO BEFORE I EVER TESTED POSITIVE.
Researchers caution this is not a cure.
Most, but not all patients, responded well to the drugs.
It is now up to the medical community to figure out why patients like Don Maciver have been able to re-claim their lives and others have not.
