Hello everybody, I've been known to oversimplify things, so please correct me if necessary. Like all of you probably, I've been reading a lot of articles and analysis since the appearance of the Alter/Lo paper and a lot of arguments keep being repeated. One of the most read arguments is: It's too early for clinical trials because causality isn't proven yet, but I keep thinking to myself: "With such a high percentage of correlation (87%) and 3 ARV's that have already proven itself in vitro, what better way is there to prove causality than HOLDING those clinical trials? If the ARV's work, we have double succes. It proves (at least partial) causality and it provides us with a cure! What's keeping them? The severity of side-effects? My uncle has HIV for years now and is treated with ARV's. I would LOVE to trade with him. The costs? Are ARV's so expensive that they cost more than millions of people depending on social security? Again, maybe I'm oversimplifying things now, but shouldn't we be petitioning, screaming, begging, writing and E-mailing for CLINICAL TRIALS NOW?
