Pathogenesis of Glutathione Deficiency and Apoptosis: AIDS (Summary)
Glutathione Deficiency is Associated with Impaired Survival in HIV Disease.
Survival in all HIV+: GSB? 0.91 = 90%, GSB? 0.91 = 32%.
Survival in CD4? 200: GSB? 1.05 = 87%, GSB? 1.05 = 17%.
Antiretroviral therapies will not successfully eradicate HIV and HIV-seropositive patients will not be ultimately cured unless therapies aimed at restoring the immune system are associated with the antiretroviral drugs currently employed.
